    Titian's paintings of the 1530s are marked by relative quiet, pictorial subtlety, and colouristic refinement, as exemplified by the Venus of Urbino (1538-1539, Uffizi, Florence), a revision of Giorgione's Sleeping Venus (c. 1510, Gemäldegalerie, Dresden).

Titian's portraits, initially like Giorgione's, soon took on a greater expansiveness and more overt authority to become compellingly beautiful images of idealized masculinity (Man with a Glove, c. 1520, Louvre) or femininity (Flora, c. 1515, Uffizi).
