After Vasari's "Lives of the Most Famous Artists", "The Life of Titian" by the 17th-century Venetian artist and writer Carlo Ridolfi is the most important contemporary documentary source for our understanding of the great Renaissance artist. This new critical edition, the first translation into English of Ridolfi's biography, illuminates his life, his artistic production and his early critical reputation. The editors address art-historical questions of attribution, provenance and documentation that Ridolfi's biography raises. Two introductory essays present the nature, scope and importance of the biography for the study of Titian and Venetian Renaissance art and place Ridolfi in the tradition of Renaissance biography and artistic literature. The annotations provide a useful and current bibliograhy drawn from both art history and literature.
