Painter. At the age of ten he was sent to Venice to start training in the workshop Zuccato. Soon Titian left this workshop and began studying painting in the workshops Bellini. In 1507, Titian joined the workshop of Giorgione as his assistant. In 1510 Titian received his first important commission to produce some frescoes in the Scuola del Santo in Padua. Since that time he began to win independent commissions and to establish himself as a painter in Venice. In 1513 he opened his own workshop. In 1516 he was commissioned to paint a new work for the high altar in the Franciscan church of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari in Venice. This altarpiece made him the most celebrated painter in Venice. His another masterpiece of the time the Martyrdom of St. Peter Martyr has been lost. Years from the 1520 to 1540 were the years when Titian created his best portraits. The best, which survived, are "A Knight of Malta," "Portrait of Tomaso or Vincenzo Mosti," "Portrait of Ippolito de Medici," "Portrait of Cardinal Pietro Bembo." In 1533 Titian was called to the court of Charles V, where he was appointed a court painter. He painted several portraits of Charles V, such as "Portrait of Charles V," "Portrait of Emperor Charles V Seated" and members of his family: "Portrait of Isabella of Portugal," "Portrait of Philip II in Armor." In 1538 Titian created another masterpiece "Venus of Urbino." His other famous women are "Flor," "Salome," "Venus Anadyomene," "Venus and Cupid with an Organist," "Venus and Adonis" and "St. Mary Magdalene." (bio by: Jelena)
