The Istituto Italiano di Cultura Toronto is hosting a free online lecture as part of a series celebrating the 500th year anniversary since the death of Raphael. On Tuesday 8th September 2020 at 3pm (EDT) Giorgio Tagliaferro, Associate Professor in Renaissance Art at the University of Warwick, will be giving a lecture entitled Titian, the 'Raphael' of Venice, examining and comparing the different lives and works these artists produced.

As the blurb explains:

The similarities between Titian and Raphael have been largely underestimated, despite the fact that the two painters were revered as paradigms of artistic perfection until well into the nineteenth century. In today’s perception, the two artists are hardly, if any, conceived of in parallel terms, inasmuch as sixteenth-century Venice and Rome are seen as separate historical entities.

The lecture is free to attend but registration is required.
