A series of Girogione's ‘lost’ paintings have been recreated.
Giorgione's incredible talent was highly regarded in the 16th century, yet it is Titian who is heralded as the star of Venetian art today. This is partly because Giorgione died young – before the city's golden age had truly flourished – but also because there has been significant problems with attribution. Early works by Giorgione and Titian are often indistinguishable and so today only six definitely bear the former's name.
This exhibition presents new versions of Giorgione's 'lost' works. The paintings have been recreated based on engravings and miniature replicas that were made of them before they disappeared. There are also three full-scale recreations of existing but damaged Giorgione materpieces, including Judith from the Hermitage in St Petersburg's collection.
