Example text

But Titian’s subsequent addition of the column supporting this group 56 Art as Appropriation: The Rise of Titian made this original borrowing more explicit still, as if to make his overall responsibility for the conception appear more absolute. The very deliberate placement of Titian’s St Catherine next to Palma’s Madonna encourages a kind of visual paragone between the two painters that recalls his near-contemporary revision to The Feast of the Gods, although this is now conducted in terms of a contrast of old and new techniques.

And this was a device he had already used in The Andrians, where the nude at the foreground right is both a quotation of and a correction to Bellini’s Lotis in The Feast, the similarity and difference of pose and position actively inviting comparison. The repainting of the Bellini in the Camerino d’Alabastro was to be Titian’s very last contribution to Alfonso’s painting cycle. But its appropriative dimension was broadly in keeping with the more general progress of the commission. What had been planned as a representative display of the contrasting artistic styles of leading masters from across Italy finally submitted to the predominance of Titian alone, who featured less as an example of the local tradition of Venice than as an independent creator of unprecedented all’antica works of ultra-modernity.
