Excerpt from The Life of Titian, Vol. 1 of 2: With Anecdotes of the Distinguished Persons of His Time
Wes des Peintres, fix it in 1477, and make him ninety-nine at his death; but as Giorgione was confessedly Older than Titian, and was born in 1478, I have preferred the joint authorities of Vasari and Sandrart, who affirm that Titian was born in 1480, at Capo dcl Cadore, a small town on the borders of the river Pieve, about five miles from the Alps and dependent on Cadore, on the confines of Friuli, under the Venetian government. His parents were called Vecelli; of an honourable family, to which belonged St Titian, Bishop Of Odezza, from whom, no doubt, our artist derived his name. He was sent, when a child of nine or ten years Old,'to Venice, to be placed in the house and under the care Of his father's brother, who was possessed of one of those lucrative Offices which were always given to citizens Of eminence.
