Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

Titian (Tiziano Vecellio) (1485-1576)

In Titian’s lifetime, the artist’s failing eyesight was noticed and discussed by his contemporaries as “the blindness of old age.” Philippe Lanthony, a French ophthalmologist who has written extensively about vision and art, speculates that retinal degeneration caused by age-related macular degeneration may have been behind Titian’s deteriorating eyesight, but that such a diagnosis could only be conjectural.
The paintings shown here were completed near the end of his life.
