Titian: Love, Desire, Death - The National Gallery, London

On Our Radar

Classical mythical creatures floating in the air, baby angels shooting their arrows and golden rays of light, Titian’s wild and dramatic ‘poesie’ series is now exhibiting in London’s spectacular National Gallery this 2020. Considered to be visual equivalents of poetry, with a sensuous interpretation of love, temptation and punishment, you’ll be enchanted by this famous collection of paintings created by one of the most famous painters in Europe.

The mythological scenes curated by Titian capture moments of fatal encounters, dramatic scenery, sinful discoveries and abduction. The dazzling paints and colours are incredibly manipulated throughout this series, truly capturing the luminous bodies of gods and goddesses, the use of awe-inspiring fabrics, water, dazzling atmosphere and enchanting landscapes. Titian not only is a spectacular painter, but also an incredible storyteller.

Discover some of the greatest paintings in European art history on the National Gallery’s main floor, indulge in the breathtaking yet dramatic series of paintings from Titian’s Love, Desire, Death, and feel like you’re in the presence of a celebrity whilst you stand in front of these iconic pieces of art.
