Join Fiona Garland for a special three part lecture series!

Please visit the Eventbrite page to purchase tickets prior to the first lecture.

Titian was 60 years old when he first met the 21-year-old Prince Philip II, heir to the Hapsburg Empire. Over the course of nearly 30 years, Philip would be Titian’s most important patron, allowing him a remarkable amount of creative freedom to realize his individual genius. From this relationship came some of the most famous works of Titian’s long career and the six mythological paintings, known as poesie, that are the center of the exhibition coming to the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum in Boston, Titian: Love, Desire, Death.

In this three-part lecture series, we will examine Titian’s mythological paintings from his early years to these final works, when he was pushing the boundaries of painting itself, delving ever deeper into issues of love, desire and death.

Your ticket will be good for each lecture on October 6, 13, and 20.

A Zoom link will be sent out a week before the first lecture.
