Titian - circa 1555

The golden hair and elegant garb of this subject would seem to identify her as a Venetian noblewoman. Titian's technical command of the oil medium is here evident in the subtle interplay of light and textures, such as the flesh tones, the heavy silk dress and the lustrous pearl earrings.

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
