1. Flora (1515-1520). Tiziano Vecellio called Titian (Venetian School, Renaissance, 1488-1576). Oil on canvas. Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence.

    Flora, in the warm and impassioned intensity of the colour, sums up the youthful period of Titian. The beautiful woman carrying flowers is thought to be Flora, the classical goddess of flowers and spring. The sheen of her reddish golden hair, the soft hue of her skin, and the just visible breast whose bareness is skillfully emphasized by her hand and the pink brocade, display Titian’s abilities as a subtle colourist and his sure feeling for sensuality.
