Through nearly four decades of the 16th century, the careers of Venice's three great painters overlapped, producing both mutual influences and bitter rivalries. As Titian, Tintoretto, and Veronese competed for primacy, they exploited the creative possibilities of novel media like oils on canvas, pioneered the newly portable format of easel painting, and took the bold approach of developing identifiable personal styles. With 177 color plates—many of them full-page detail views—this substantive exhibit catalog from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, compares their work in the context of this formative era in Western art history, resulting in a vibrant human portrait of innovation, ambition, one-upmanship, humor, and passion.
