Big image

The image above is a piece made by Titian in 1547. It is called Emperor Charles V at Battle of Muehlberg. The piece can be found in art museums. It was made by oil on canvas and a Venetian style of painting. This piece was made very well and exmplifies Titian's great use of colors and shading. Humanism can be linked to the painting because it shows that humans alone can fight their own battles, aswell as the emperor himself.
