Tiziano Vecelli, or Titian as he's known, was a Venetian painter around the 1500s. He is famous for his handling of color and girls with flowing red locks. Most renaissance galleries have a Titian somewhere, though time hasn't been good to them, and the colors aren't what they once were. So dig around and find the good ones, so you can appreciate this great master's work properly.

Raphael's Deposition of Christ 1507. One of the great masters of the renaissance, not just a Ninja Turtle. Raphael painted for the Catholic Church, who at the time dominated Europe and controlled much of the money...hence being able to afford exquisite art and architecture that we get to appreciate today.
