A. Pintura: Art Detective Chapter Five: Titian

Titian. An oldie but a goodie in my book. He was so respected in the 1500's that Emperor Charles V once picked up a brush Titian had dropped--and royalty rarely stoops for anyone.

"I've got a reproduction of a Titian painting here in my drawer," I told Miss Featherduster. "What do you say we compare it with your mystery painting?"

 "After comparing these two paintings," I told her, "I'd say that...

...you could be the proud owner of a Titian."

...your painting is clearly not by Titian."
