Description
The author of Our Grandmothers' Drums, which won the Somerset Maugham and Thomas Cook awards, Mark Hudson here admires the remarkable, highly experimental late work of Tiziano Vecelli (14881576), known to the world as Titian, and sets out to understand the source of these innovations and the artist himself.

"Hudson employs a variety of strategies and tones in this remarkably engaging story. He is at times the pedagogue, the dazzled fan, the nervous tourist, the frustrated scholar, the disgusted critic (especially with verbose and pretentious art historians).... Hudson does not neglect the artist's personal life, filling us in on what's known about his love life and his children. Most captivating, however, is the author's own journey, from Venice to Spain to Czechoslovakia and elsewhere to follow the story of the great Italian painter. Intense passion and humble scholarship infuse this personal odyssey of discovery with arresting power."Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
