Man With a Glove, 1520(The Louvre, Paris).


Doge Andrea Gritti, 1545(National Gallery of Art, Washington). Note how  “impressionistic” the rendering of fabric has become in this work,  as well as the weird little puffball buttons on his cloak.


Flora, 1515-1520(Uffizi, Florence). When I first saw this, I thought she looked like a 19th century beer advertisment. Not Titian’s fault, obviously. On a more serious note, this  and the top portrait does show that Titian could be quite meticuoulus when he wished to be meticulous.
