22-05-2019

Fashion and trends, but also research, culture, roots in the region: the basis for the wide range of models and colours in Compab’s range. “Titian Red” is an unusual shade of reddish orange, warm and golden-hued, invented by the famous painter. Its uniform shade reflects light evenly. T he red pigment gives a warm, sensual atmosphere, and Titian’s female subjects, with their chalk-white skin and coppery-blonde hair, were widely admired for their beauty, sensuality, refinement and femininity. This shade of red remained as a hallmark of Venetian art for generations of artists in Europe.
