Titian and the Golden Age of Venetian Painting
Michael Clarke , Edgar Peters Bowron, Andrew Butterfield
The National Galleries of Scotland has displayed the acclaimed Bridgewater Collection, one of the world's most important groups of Old Master paintings still under private ownership, since 1945. Consisting largely of French and Italian works, the collection includes Titian's Diana and Actaeon (recently purchased by the National Galleries of Scotland and the National Gallery of London) and Diana and Callisto, each an undeniable masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance.
Featuring 50 beautiful colour illustrations, this catalogue accompanies an unprecedented exhibition of 25 paintings and drawings from the National Galleries of Scotland. In addition to the works by Titian, the book features superb paintings and drawings by Lorenzo Lotto, Jacopo Bassano, Tintoretto, and Veronese.
With special emphasis on the Titian masterpieces, the expert authors discuss aspects of the Bridgewater Collection and its long, proud history of bringing Old Master paintings to public view.
