TITIAN: DIALOGUES OF NATURE AND LOVE Titian, Nymph and Shepherd 1570/75 Vienna, Kunsthistorisches Museum 149,6 x 187 cm oil on canvas

From 14 June to 18 September 2022 the Galleria Borghese will present Titian: Dialogues of Nature and Love, curated by Maria Giovanna Sarti, an exhibition-dossier celebrating the loan of Nymph and Shepherd – an autograph work executed by the Venetian master around 1565 – granted by the Kunsthistorisches Museum of Vienna as part of  a programme of cultural exchange between the two institutions.

The encounter between the work from Vienna and Titian’s paintings in the Galleria provides an opportunity to link the works around several constant themes in the painter’s production: Nature, understood as landscape, but also as a place of human action; Love in its diverse forms – divine, natural, matrimonial; and  Time, which marks and regulates the human life cycle, assimilating it into the harmony of the universe.

Nature and Love are bound by a harmonious relationship, part of the life cycle, to which alludes the amorous and musical allegory of Nymph and Shepherd, one of the master’s last works, considered by some the summa of his artistic aspirations.
