This addition to the "Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists" series introduces young readers to the painter known for his life-like portraits and bold use of color. Born in a small town in northern Italy, Titian was sent to Venice at the age of ten to study painting. Apprenticing with the Bellini brothers, Titian quickly learned from the masters and was soon one of the most sought-after painters. Kings and princes waited months and months for Titian to paint their portraits. Eventually, Titian hired assistants and opened his own workshop. Known today as the "Prince of Painters," Titian dedicated his long life to painting. Reproductions of his works, coupled with humorous cartoons, allow even young readers to explore Titian's paintings in this short biographical sketch. Anecdotal stories help create a more approachable version of a master Renaissance painter. 2003, Children's Press/Scholastic Inc,
