Titian and the Golden Age of Venetian Painting: Masterpieces from the National Galleries of Scotland
Sunday, February 6, 2011—Sunday, May 1, 2011
Minneapolis Insitute of Arts
Two of the most important paintings from the Italian Renaissance are making their Twin Cities debut Sunday. Venetian painter Titian's 'Diana and Actaeon' and 'Diana and Callisto' will be on view at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the second of only three stops the paintings will make on their first visit to the United States.
The Dianas join 11 other paintings and 12 drawings as part of 'Titian and the Golden Age of Venetian Painting: Masterpieces From the National Galleries of Scotland.'
The exhibit also features major works by other influential 16th-century Venetian artists, including Lotto, Tintoretto, Bassano, Cariani, Bordone and Veronese.
Acclaimed as the most poetic creations of the Italian Renaissance, these luminous sixteenth-century paintings are the two most significant works by Titian outside of Italy and Spain. Originally painted for King Philip II of Spain, they entered the Bridgewater/Sutherland collection at the end of the eighteenth century and have been on loan to the National Gallery since 1945.
