Venetian Renaissance artist Titian (Tiziano Vecellio) (c. 1485-1576) was at the apex of the Venetian school of painting during the Italian Renaissance. The artist Titian received much of his training in the workshop of Italian Renaissance artist, Giovanni Bellini. With his close friend Giorgione, the artist Titian collaborated in a number of art works. Giorgione died young, and the artist Titian completed many of his works. Giorgione's style was so similar to the style of the artist Titian that it is dificult to distinguish one from the other.

After the death of Bellini, Italian Renaissance artist Titian was awarded the title of official court painter in 1530 by the emperor Charles V. The artist Titian maintained a large workshop to keep up with the demands of an admiring public, as he was particularly famous for his portraits and mythological works.

Said to be greedy and ruthless in his monetary dealings, the artist Titian was generous with his friends. An enormous talent, the artist Titian influenced subsequent generations of artists with his innovative painting techniques. Right up to the time of his death, the artistic talents of the artist Titian remained undiminished.
