An archival premium Quality art Print of Venus with a Mirror by Titian for sale by Brandywine General Store. This oil on canvas was completed by the Venetian artist in 1555. The following is how the National Gallery of Art describes this masterpiece by Titian. At the core of Renaissance art is the revival of the classical past, and in his Venus with a Mirror, Titian revealed both his appreciation of antiquity and his remarkable modernity. During a sojourn in Rome he wrote that he was "learning from the marvelous ancient stones" that were being unearthed daily in the city. Indeed, he based the gesture of the goddess, her hands held to her breast and lap, on a famous Roman statue of Venus that later belonged to the Medici. Old Masters art print #101
