This book is only good for a general idea of Titian's work. The reproductions are small and there are no close-ups. But I didn't send it back because it was not worth the trouble. It's a history book, not good for art viewing.

The author of this paper focused on "art theory" which is one part of Titian's life. I would like to read more about his actual life and interactions with events and people of his time.. The reproductions are good, but seem to be lacking something - clarity?
Only the men are portrayed in clothing. Almost all of the women are undressed. And not all of the women are goddesses or saints or mythical creatures - some of them are living in Titian's world in everyday situations. And it appears to be a "man's" world.
