le titien musee du luxembourg

35 original portraits of Titien are lodged until January inside the small museum of Luxembourg, beside the Palais du Senat. Fascinated by the expression of the human face, Titien is one of the large observant artists of the Italian Rebirth. Beside the official portraits such those of Charles Quint or François 1st, his portraits of woman suggest purity and lyricism at the same time. Pure and stripped, voluptuous Venus. Strong Judith, decapitating Holopherne, scenes biblical and yet contemporary, immortal women in their elegance. Tullia d' Aragona, the most tempting courtesan of Venice, is reported for ever in all its sensuality. Titien, which became the official painter of Charles Quint, could always preserve a theatrical naturalness. The installations are unquestionably worked but preserve the grace of a learnedly retranscribed spontaneousness. The man with the glove or the portrait of a musician brings back to us simpler humanities, but always also blazing by their proximity with our common meetings. An exhibition to discover lost faces but astonishment alive.
