Overview

The Classic Art Series

Abrams is proud to announce a major event in art history. The Classic Art Series offers a comprehensive approach to publishing the Old Masters. Commissioned from important scholars, these books reproduce every known work by their subjects in large-format color illustrations, along with a general biographical and critical essay, commentaries, and extensive documentation, including a list of collections and extensive bibliography. Printed on the very finest paper using the most sophisticated technology available today, they are intended to be both beautiful art books and lasting contributions to knowledge.

Titian (1489-1576) was one of the most influential painters in the entire history of Western art and Venice's greatest artist. A sublime colorist and an artist of broad range, he was equally adept at portraits and landscapes, Christian stories and pagan myths. Titian was recognized as a genius early in his youth, while the work of his old age was unprecedented for its originality and power. Peter Humphrey's essay and Vasari's famous life of Titian are followed by an annotated color catalogue of Titian's complete paintings.
