"Titian: The Museum's First Exhibition of His Works"
2003-06-10 until 2003-09-07
Museo del Prado
No other painter was more famous in Spain in the so-called "Golden Age" than Titian, avidly collected by the country's monarchs and a source of inspiration for artists such as Rubens and Velázquez. Despite this fact, and that the Museo Nacional del Prado houses the best collection of the artist's work in the world, the Museum has never devoted a major exhibition to his work.
The exhibition Titian aims to rectify this situation. With the collaboration of the national Gallery, an ambitious project has been devised which brings together the largest group of works by the artist assembled since 1935: 65 paintings from various European and American institutions which include some of his most celebrated works, such as the Salome (Rome, Gallerie Doria Pamphili), La Schiavona (London, National Gallery), Man with a Glove ( Paris, Louvre), Tarquin and Lucretia (Cambridge, Fitzwilliam Museum ), Ranuccio Farnese ( Washington, National Gallery), and The Punishment of Marsyas Kromeriz)
