Allegory Of Prudence
The ALLEGORY OF PRUDENCE (c. 1565–1570) is an oil painting attributed to the Italian artist Titian
Titian
and his assistants. It is in the National Gallery, London
National Gallery, London
. The painting portrays three human heads, each facing in a different direction, above three animal heads, depicting (from left) a wolf, a lion and a dog. The painting is usually interpreted as operating on a number of levels. At the first level, the different ages of the three human heads represent the "Three Ages of Man" (youth, maturity, old age). The different directions in which they are facing reflect a second, wider concept of Time itself as having a past, present and future. This theme is repeated in the animal heads which, according to some traditions, are associated with those categories of time

International Standard Book Number
The INTERNATIONAL STANDARD BOOK NUMBER (ISBN) is a unique numeric commercial book identifier. An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book , a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-based and varies from country to country, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country. The initial ISBN configuration of recognition was generated in 1967 based upon the 9-digit STANDARD BOOK NUMBERING (SBN) created in 1966. The 10-digit ISBN format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and was published in 1970 as international standard ISO 2108 (the SBN code can be converted to a ten digit ISBN by prefixing it with a zero)

Oil Painting
OIL PAINTING is the process of painting with pigments with a medium of drying oil as the binder . Commonly used drying oils include linseed oil , poppy seed oil , walnut oil , and safflower oil . The choice of oil imparts a range of properties to the oil paint , such as the amount of yellowing or drying time. Certain differences, depending on the oil, are also visible in the sheen of the paints. An artist might use several different oils in the same painting depending on specific pigments and effects desired. The paints themselves also develop a particular consistency depending on the medium. The oil may be boiled with a resin , such as pine resin or frankincense , to create a varnish prized for its body and gloss. Although oil paint was first used for Buddhist paintings by Indian and Chinese painters in western Afghanistan sometime between the fifth and tenth centuries, it did not gain popularity until the 15th century

Self-Portrait (Titian, Madrid)
SELF-PORTRAIT is an oil-on-canvas painting by the Italian painter Titian
Titian
. Dating to about 1560, when Titian
Titian
would have been over 70 years old, it is the later of his two surviving self-portraits. The painting is a realistic and unflattering depiction of the physical effects of old age, and as such shows none of the self-confidence of his earlier self-portrait (c. 1546–47) now in Berlin. That painting shows Titian
Titian
in three-quarter view in an alert pose. Titian
Titian
looks remote, aged and gaunt, staring into the middle distance, seemingly lost in thought. Yet the portrait projects dignity, authority and the mark of a master painter. DESCRIPTION Self-portrait (c. 1560–62), 96 cm × 72 cm. Gemäldegalerie, Berlin . This work does not refer to the artist's occupation: the only autobiographical reference is his golden chain, a sign of his knighthood

by Titian

Isabella of Portugal
(1503–1539), wife of Charles I of Spain and daughter of King Manuel I of Portugal. Titian
Titian
painted her after her death, using a mediocre painting for reference. The portrait follows a classic scheme already used by Raphael
Raphael
and Leonardo da Vinci , in which the model sits next to a window opening on a landscape. The landscape gives depth to the composition, and its greenish and bluish tones provide a contrast to the interior scene dominated by warm colors

Equestrian Portrait Of Charles V
EQUESTRIAN PORTRAIT OF CHARLES V (also EMPEROR CHARLES V ON HORSEBACK or CHARLES V AT MüHLBERG) is an oil-on-canvas painting by the Italian Renaissance artist Titian
Titian
. Created between April and September 1548 while Titian
Titian
was at the imperial court of Augsburg
Augsburg
, it is a tribute to Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor , following his victory in the April 1547 Battle of Mühlberg against the Protestant armies. The portrait in part gains its impact by its directness and sense of contained power: the horse's strength seems just in check, and Charles' brilliantly shining armour and the painting's deep reds are reminders of battle and heroism. Titian
Titian
recorded all of the foreground elements—the horse, its caparison , and the rider's armour—from those used in the actual battle
