Full name Tiziano Vecelli Da Cadore (1485-1576)
He came from a family of lawyers and notaries. At nine years of age, he left to study in the contemporary centre of art: Venice. There, he met with not only Leonardo da Vinci
and Albrecht Dürer
. Tizian’s uncle promoted and developed his talent, until one day the young artist was admitted to the workshop of Giovanni Bellini
. His name worked its way into the minds of potential customers. When his master died, he became the main Venetian painter. His customers were Venetian Doges, for whom he not only painted portraits (Jacopo Strada)
. Tizian’s paintings have become a symbol of luxury and wealth. After the coronation of Emperor Charles V, he was awarded a knighthood. In 1542, at the request of Pope Paul III, he moved to Rome, where he replaced Michelangelo.
Tizian laid the foundations for the Renaissance
and inspired artists, such as Rembrandt
