TITIAN: THE GROMANI RISEN CHRIST -- AN EARLY MASTERPIECE. Artur Rosenauer. Hirmer Verlag, Munich, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Chicago Press. 64 pp. with 52 col. ills. 34 x 27 cm. ISBN 9783777426396 In English.
Publisher's description: In 2013, art historian Artur Rosenauer made the most important Titian discovery in decades: an early and previously unknown painting, The Risen Christ, probably commissioned by a religious community when the artist was in his early twenties. Long concealed within private collections, the painting is now on display at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and this accompanying book makes it accessible to the public for the first time in more than one hundred years. Extensively illustrated, Titian: The Grimani Risen Christ. An Early Masterpiece offers a concise account of the work's provenance: It was in the possession over time by both the Grimanis, one of the most illustrious patrician families in Venice, and by German Chancellor Bernhard Heinrich von Bulow before it was acquired by its present owners. Astonishingly well-preserved, the painting shows a young Christ standing on the lid of his sealed tomb. His left hand holds the flag of the resurrection, while his right arm is raised in blessing. The details of the painting -- especially the dramatic Easter morning sky -- demonstrate the genius with which Titian exploited light and color in his work.
