    Owner Name: Titian

    In possession from: 1544 to 1545

    Location: Casa Grande

    Notes:

    Titian began working on the painting in Venice, but completed it when he arrived in Rome in 1545. Giovanni della Casa, papal legate to Venice, wrote about the painting to its patron Cardinal Alessandro Farnese. He wrote that it will "make the nude that Your Reverence saw in the dwelling of the duke of Urbino in Pesaro look like a nun by comparison.” He is referring to the "Venus of Urbino."
