Titian's La Bella: Woman in a Blue Dress
The most celebrated artist of the Venetian Renaissance, Titian (Tiziano Vecellio) is unsurpassed as a portrait painter and member of the sixteenth century Venetian School. One of his most iconic artworks is the single masterpiece popularly known as La Bella (The Beautiful Woman). Made possible through the cooperation of the New York based Foundation for Italian Art & Culture (FIAC) and arte italia, the 29.5" x 39.4" oil on canvas painting was on loan from the Galleria Palatina in the Palazzo Pitti, Florence, Italy. A defining example of Renaissance portraiture, La Bella (1536), celebrates feminine beauty and exemplifies ideals of the time. Rarely seen outside of Italy, this prominent masterpiece traveled to only three exclusive locations in the United States including the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno.
