About

Titian was the pre-eminent painter of the 16th century. How was he able to please the most powerful ruler of the day, King Philip II of Spain, so spectacularly? And what were his motivations: loyalty, money or power?

Carlo Corsato reveals how the story of Venus and Adonis, the most successful of Titian's mythology paintings for the King, can help us to understand the secrets of their unique partnership.
