Painting in Sixteenth-Century Venice, here published in a revised and updated edition, explores the visual tradition of one of the most important centers of the Italian Renaissance through a study of three masters--Titian, Veronese, and Tintoretto--who dominated and shaped the traditions of Venetian painting in the High and Late Renaissance. David Rosand also explores the formal principles and technical procedures that determined the uniqueness of painting in Venice, above all the development of oil painting on canvas.
