About This Book
Leave it to the 16th-century Renaissance master Titian to switch to oil painting (a new technique at the time) to preserve the frescoes, portraits, and other art he made in Venice's damp climate. Titian loved to experiment, and especially loved using his favorite color--red!
These books are without a doubt the definitive — and most entertaining — biographies of artists for young readers. Author/artist Mike Venezia provides hilarious, cartoon-style illustrations to complement his easy-to-read text and full-color reproductions of the masters' artwork. Now printed in a dozen different languages worldwide, and with more than two million copies of the English editions sold, these books have helped countless children around the world "get to know" the world's greatest artists!
