Titian at the Royal Castle

Article's tools:

After the memorable display of the Venus of Urbino in 1998, Polish audiences have been presented with a new opportunity to see a 16th-century masterpiece by Titian. This time, it is Portrait of a Man (Tommaso Mosti) from the Palazzo Pitti collection in Florence.

Organized by the Italian embassy in Poland on the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy, the presentation is being held under the honorary auspices of the presidents of Poland and Italy, Bronis³aw Komorowski and Giorgio Napolitano. The painting will be on display for almost two months starting Sept. 13 at the Marshal Room of the Royal Castle in Warsaw.

According to art critics, the work of the “painter of princes and prince of painters,” as Giorgio Vasari described Titian in Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors and Architects (1550), heralded the arrival of the painting styles of future centuries, the impressionism included. Titian’s paintings were copied, imitated and reinterpreted by the likes of Watteau, Goya, Cezanne, Rembrandt, Manet and Rubens.

Titian’s works are now part of the collections of the world’s greatest galleries, including the Gemäldegalerie in Dresden, the Gallerie dell’ Accademia in Venice, the National Galleries in London and Washington, the Louvre in Paris, the Alte Pinakothek in Munich, the Gardner Museum in Boston, the Museo di Capodimonte in Naples, and the Palazzo Pitti in Florence.
