Hawthornden Lecture Theatre - Gardens Entrance (Scottish National Gallery)


Titian’s works are often seen as embodying the famous tradition of Venetian Renaissance painting. But can his unique works really be seen as representative of his adoptive city? This talk by Tom Nichols, University of Glasgow, will highlight the tensions between the individualism of Titian’s paintings and the conservative social and cultural mores of Venice.
