WORKS BY TITIAN: WHERE YOU CAN FIND AND SEE WORKS BY TITIAN IN VENICE

Works by Titian. Great exhibitions often offer the chance to admire masterpieces of artists we love.
Among the great events in Treviso in autumn 2016 there is the exhibition “Tiziano. Rubens. Rembrandt” (“Titian Rubens Rembrandt”), and one of the work on exhibition that I look forward to admiring is the “Venere che sorge dal mare (“Venus rising from the sea”) by Titian.
But few minutes far from Treviso lies Venice, and there you may find some of the most important works of this artist.

Tiziano | Casa Venezia

You can visit Venice retracing Titian’s footsteps, and that is a marvellous tour. Here is my itinerary in pictures that I tested for you, but it will take you at least two days to see everything. Practically a weekend!

THE DOGE’S PALACE

Titian was the official painter of the Serenissima, but he wasn’t proposed for this role, because he himself proposed for that prestigious role, that before him was occupied by Giovanni Bellini. In a letter dated 1531 to the Consiglio dei Dieci (the Council of Ten) Titian proposed himself for the role, aware of his talent and merit.

Below Titian’s works you can admire inside the Doge’s Palace and the Libreria Marciana (National Library of St. Mark’s).

BASILICA OF SANTA MARIA DELLA SALUTE

In 1656 some Titian’s paintings were moved from a monastery to the Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute, a majestic building that had been just built, and whose images I published in the post History of the Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute. Titian’s paintings are still housed inside the church.

CHURCHES, MUSEUMS AND PALACES HOUSING TITIAN’S MASTERPIECES

The itinerary that will make you discover Venice through Titian’s works will include the main churches and buildings of the city.
I’m sure that you will discover less-known corners of the city, and not included in the usual tourists’ itinerary.
For examples, the Chiesa di San Sebastiano (the Church of San Sebastiano), where you may find the painting “San Niccolò” (around 1563) described as “un San Niccolò che pare vivo” (“a Saint who seems to be alive”).
Below the list in pictures of Titian’s masterpieces, with the name of the buildings where you can find them.
