Art and Love in Renaissance Italy (exhibition)
On now at the Met is a fascinating exhibition titled "Art and Love in Renaissance Italy":
The New York Times describes it very effectively:
In this painting, Venus's figure looks fuller than ever before in a Titian work. She looks like she has never exerted herself, but has led a pampered existence and had all her desires provided for -- but has indulged herself greatly, completely secure in her opulent attractions. The musician beside her (an emblematic artist-figure) gazes on admiringly, drawing inspiration from her sumptuous beauty to compose a masterpiece.
Unless you're planning on visiting Madrid in the future, this is the one chance to see this Titian painting in North America, and that alone is worth the prince of admission.
