Lucian Freud, Girl Holding Her Foot, 1985
Diana and Actaeon and Diana and Callisto have now been continuously on public view for sixty-three years. In this time, millions of visitors have seen them and drawn inspiration. Their relevance for the artists, writers and art-lovers of today is as strong as in the decades following their creation. In 2001, the artist Lucian Freud wrote of Titian’s two Diana paintings, ‘When I first saw these Titians I was so affected by the navel of the nymph Callisto that I repainted the stomach of a naked portrait I was doing at the time… To me, these are simply the most beautiful pictures in the world. Once you've seen them, you want to see them again and again.’
