Italian Art & Artists: Titian & Giorgione


Friday, April 15, 2016

He was not the great architect or sculptor like Michelangelo, or the inventor and scientist that was Leonardo’s gift, he was just a painter, but a painter who fully utilized color in his work. Titian’s style did alter throughout his long life but his interest in color never diminished. His use of paint and brushwork made him the foremost painter in Venice and his execution of both landscapes and portraits brought him great fame in his own lifetime and after. The High Renaissance Venetian painter Giorgio Barbarelli da Castelfranco, popularly known as Giorgione, was a pupil of Giovanni Bellini, whose unique expression of color, light and atmosphere gave Venetian painting a distinctive character to rival the Florentine focus on line and composition. Presented by Professor John Coppola, MFA, MA will study and discuss the life career and unique aesthetics of some of the greatest Italian Artist from the Renaissance to the contemporary age.
