Metamorphosis: Titian 2012Bringing together contemporary artists with paintings by Renaissance master Titian, Metamorphosis: Titian 2012 will see choreographers, composers, poets and visual artists responding with inspiration to create their own masterpieces; their work will be displayed at the National Gallery and performed by the Royal Ballet at the Royal Opera House. One of the most versatile Italian painters and considered 'The Sun Amidst Small Stars' by his peers, Titian evoked a great influence on painters with the Italian Renaissance with works of landscapes, portraits and backgrounds all of equal quality. Three of the artist's major paintings are at the centre of the exhibition - Diana and Actaeon, The Death of Actaeon and Diana and Callisto - and these have inspired three British contemporary artists: Chris Ofili, Conrad Shawcross and Mark Wallinger to create new settings for the ballets at the Royal Opera House. On 16th July a special performance of the ballets will be broadcast live on a screen in Trafalgar Square. The event has also enabled the National Gallery to commission work by poets such as Simon Armitage and Carol Ann Duffy who have also gained inspiration from Titian and the Diana series.
