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.
