Titian masterpieces on show in Moscow

Moscow, June 26 - A wide range of masterpieces by Italian master Titian, never before brought together for Russian audiences, has opened at the Pushkin Museum in Moscow. Eleven masterpieces from several museums in eight Italian cities, including two large altarpieces, were gathered for the exhibition organized by Italian curators and the director of the Pushkin, Irina Antonova. Artistic ties between Russia and Italy are becoming increasingly important, Italian Ambassador Antonio Zanardi Landi said at the show's opening in Moscow. "Titian is the first truly European painter, a modern artist who changed the course of painting, influencing great artists of the 17th century including Velazquez, Rubens, Poussin and even Rembrandt," he said. The exhibition, which continues until September 29, reconstructs the entire artistic career of the Venetian painter, focusing on three areas: sacred art, allegorical works and portraiture.
