Titians The Three Ages of Man c 1512 has captivated viewers since its creation This masterpiece was not always attributed to him however due to the similarities between his early work and that of Giorgione Kennedy It was created in Italy the heart of the Renaissance but today hangs in the National Gallery of Scotland In the right foreground of the painting we see two slumbering children They are very young infants really and nestled together the way kittens of the same litter might sleep Immediately above them Cupid identified by his wings and halo of golden curls seems to be holding up a dead tree branch that would had it not been for his assistance have fallen onto the little boys and crushed them In the left foreground we see a firmly-muscled young man with dark wild hair Kneeling next to him and staring intently into his face is a lovely shepherdess Her golden hair is adorned with a wreath of wildflowers and her loosely draped cloak reveals a tantalizing amount of skin She is holding two flutes and the young man is looking at her with an expression of exhausted longing In the back of the picture between the younger figures and the landscape sits a very old man He is swathed in a pink cloak and his long white beard nearly touches the human skull he bends to contemplate Another skull lies next to him on the ground His expression is one of rumination and perhaps sadness The landscape of the painting in which the figures are staggered is serene yet isolated There are rolling hills the old man sits upon one and a covering of withered foliage in the distance towards the horizon Behind the trees is a large white structure perhaps a church and a deep blue sea or lake Streaks of color on the horizon suggest that the sun has recently risen or is about to set This image
