Titian: Love, Desire, DeathWith landmark loans from the likes of the Wallace Collection along with six paintings jointly owned by the National Gallery and the National Galleries of Scotland, Titian: Love, Desire, Death will bring together Titian's large-scale mythological paintings, which form the 'poesie', for the first time since the late 16th century. Painted between 1551 and 1561, the 'poesie' are among the most original visual interpretations of Classical myth and the early modern era with all of the paintings revolving around love and desire and their fruit and perils. Through Titian's masterful use of paint and colour, he beautifully captures the flesh, fabrics, water and reflection to create enchanting and engaging landscapes. The Wallace Collection will lend Perseus and Andromeda while The National Gallery's Death of Actaeon, which was originally created as part of the series but never delivered, will also feature.

Some of the finest examples of European art, ranging from 1260 to 1900, are included among the 2,300 paintings filling its halls and rooms. More about National Gallery
