In the past two years I have been blogging about Giorgione, Titian, and  the Venetian Renaissance. Here is a link to my blog at Giorgione et al…The blog posts include much of the material that led to the major interpretive discoveries on this site. “Giorgione et al…” also includes some other interpretive discoveries, as well as suggestions for future investigation. Below find links to selected blog posts.
