520    A quintessential work of the High Renaissance in Venice, 
       Titian's Venus of Urbino also represents one of the major 
       themes of Western art: the female nude. But how did Titian
       intend this work to be received? Is she Venus, as the 
       popular title - a modern invention - implies, or is she 
       merely a courtesan? This book tackles this and other 
       questions in six essays by European and American art 
       historians. Examining the work within the context of 
       Renaissance art theory, as well as the psychology and 
       society of sixteenth-century Italy, and even in relation 
       to Manet's nineteenth-century "translation" of the work, 
       their observations begin and end with the painting itself 
       and with appreciation of Titian's great achievement in 
       creating this archetypal image of feminine beauty.
