Our cover illustration is The Tribute Money, Titian, National Gallery, London. Painted between 15451568. This later work of Titian was sent to his great patron, Philip II of Spain and hung in the sombre corridors of the Escorial in 1574. The subject is rare in art. The original of this painting had probably been a smaller version for Alfonso d'Este, Duke of Ferrara, which hung in his famous cabinet of coins and medals. The coin in the hand of St Peter is identifiable as a gold coin of the Ferrarese. The Christ in this picture is held by some t be an idealized portrait of Titian himself as a younger man (c.f. The Man with a Quilted Sleeve) also in the National Gallery, London. Both pictures can be viewed in the current exhibition of paintings by Titian at the National Gallery.
