Joseph and the Wife of Putiphar
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1555
Tintoretto, Jacopo Robusti

Joseph is a handsome and virtuous slave falsely accused of rape by his master´s wife, whose advances he has rejected. He is imprisoned, but eventually raised to the highest office by Pharaoh (Exodus: 39). Joseph and the Wife of Putiphar and Susannah and the Elders (P386) can be understood as parables of righteousness threatened and preserved, but here -as was usual for artists of the Renaissance a

Danaë and the Shower of Gold
Oil on canvas. 1560 - 1565
Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

The first Poesie presented to Prince Philip were Danaë (1553, The Wellington Collection) and Venus and Adonis (1554, Museo del Prado, P422), versions of other previous works, but endowed with all the prestige of the commissioning party. In turn, these works became models for numerous replicas (Danaë receiving the Golden Rain, 1560-65, Museo del Prado, P425).Danaë depicts the moment

Lady covering her Breast
Oil on canvas. 1580 - 1590
Tintoretto, Domenico

The two canvases P382 y P384 are by the same artist and were probably intended as a pair. Their meaning can be gleaned from L’arte de Cenni (1616), the most important treatise on gestures of its day, written by the jurist Giovanni Bonifacio. According to Bonifacio, revealing a bare breast signifies sincerity, “as the breast is the location of the heart and when referring to speaking truly and sinc

Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)

In contrast to the paintings created for the Camerino d´Alabastro and the poesie made for Philip II, the canvases on the subject of Venus do not form a homogenous group as they were not painted for one client, nor were they designed to be shown together. In fact, the five paintings on this subject are variations on one idea. Located in a villa on the Venetian terra ferma, they depict Venus reclini

This is one of seven canvases (P00386, P00388, P00389, P00393, P00394, P00395, P00396) in a group linked by the same color scheme, a general accentuation of surface drawing and a rhythm of curved forms that link on painting to another. The scenes were designed to be seen together, at a certain height and laid out on canvases conceived as inclined planes that converged on a central painting. Clearl

Flora
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1590
Tintoretto, Domenico

There are two classical Floras: the mythological goddess, wife of Zephyrus and an example of marital harmony and fertility; and the legendary Roman prostitute of that name. The two became associated in the Middle Ages, and by the Renaissance both young brides and courtesans were identified with Flora. The wild rose held by this figure has a similarly dual meaning: a symbol of both marital fecundit

Lady revealing her Breast
Oil on canvas. 1580 - 1590
Tintoretto, Domenico

This depiction of an honest courtesan, presents an iconography of increasing interest to art historians in recent decades. With her curly blond hair, bare forehead and pearl necklace, as well as the breast she so generously offers the viewer, the model recalls a young woman whose mother sought to introduce her into the business of high-level prostitution, as described by Veronica Franco (1546-1591

Young Man between Vice and Virtue
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1581
Veronese, Paolo (Paolo Cagliari)

The moralizing intention of this work shows the two paths that will tempt men over the course of their lives: Virtue and Vice. Virtue, wearing the crown of laurels that has been her symbol since Antiquity, and hiding her anatomy under ample vestments, takes the youth by the hand. Vice, in the form of a blond Venetian courtesan with a generous décolleté and numerous jewels, reaches ou

This scene from the Old Testament (Exodus II, 5-6) depicts the moment when the Pharaoh´s daughter and her ladies-in-waiting remove from the Nile River the basket in which baby Moses was placed by his Hebrew mother in order to save him from the slaughter of boy children ordered by that ruler. Outside the biblical text, Veronese has included a dwarf in the scene. Dwarves were often present at sixtee
