Titian – the Sacred and the Secular

Digital Education Programming Presented by the
Center for Health & Wellbeing

This is an art talk you won’t want to miss. Tiziano Vecelli, as known as Titian, was a giant among Italian Renaissance painters and one of the first to master oil painting to create dramatic contrasts of light and dark. In 16th-century Venice, many European courts commissioned his works, making him the first painter to have a mainly international clientele. His influence on younger painters was deep and he is still considered one of the most important artists in the history of art, certainly the best-remembered of the School of Venice.

In this program by art history professor Dr. Robert Lemon, you’ll learn the development of oil painting, religious and social themes and how the life and work of Titian integrated. Unplug from your day and enjoy learning more about the extraordinary life and talent of Tiziano Vecelli.

This program is presented by Dr. Robert Lemon and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
