Campaign for the Titians

I'm a bit of a fan of Titian - an artist who I must admit I knew very little about before the fantastic Titian exhibition at the National Gallery in 2003. Since then I've enjoyed any opportunity to see his work, so was very excited when the painting 'Supper at Emmaus' came to the Walker on long term loan the following year (it's still there - have a look next time you're in and see if you can spot the cat under the table!)

So as you can imagine, I'm looking forward to a trip down to London next month when I'm hoping to catch the exhibition Campaign for the Titians at the National Gallery, which reunites two of his paintings for the first time in two centuries - 'Death of Actaeon' from the National Gallery's collection and the prequel painting 'Diana and Actaeon', which is visiting London for one month only. This is a rare opportunity to see both paintings together but hopefully wont be the last chance we get, as the National Gallery and National Galleries of Scotland are hoping to jointly purchase 'Diana and Actaeon'. Fingers crossed...Support the Titian Campaign
