Titian’s Metamorphosis

Art Blog - Titian's Metamorphosis - Empty Kingdom

As any of you lovely London souls will know, Summer 2012 was not only about the olympics but also an incredible feat of artistic exhibitionism. Titian’s Metamorphosis was unquestionably one of wrenchingly best. A stunning collaboration between contemporary artists and The Royal Ballet that centered around the powerful theme of metaporphosis in three of Titian’s paintings, on show for the first time in centuries. Although we can’t bring the ballet itself to your doorstep, below is one gorgeous facet – the film of the re-imagined Diana myth. Chilling, and sublime.
