Titian is considered to be the greatest Venetian artist of the fifteenth century. He trained under Giovanni Bellini and Giorgione, two artists with very similar styles. Tiziano's brother, Francesco Vecellio, was also an artist. Titian was commissioned to create a piece for the high altar of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, a church in Venice. This shows his superiority above other artists of the time. Later on, in 1533, Vecellio created a portrait of a member of the Medici family. The portrait was of Ippolito de Medici, a Italian cardinal. In 1538, Titian completed Venus of Urbino, his most famous piece. Titian died in Venice, Italy in 1576 at the age of eighty eight.
