vaded the territory of the Rajah of Travancore, an ally
of the British, who soon after formed an alliance with
the Mahrattas and took the fort of Bangalore, (1791.)

of Lord Cornwallis in 1792, advanced against Seringa-
patam, when Tippoo consented to renounce one-half of
his dominions to the allies, give up two of his sons as
hostages, and pay a sum of more than ^3,000,000. He
nevertheless endeavoured in secret to incite the native
princes against the English government, and solicited
aid from France. In 1799 he was besieged in Seringa-
patam by the British forces under General Harris, and

mythical personage, a son of Laomedon, was beloved by

Titian, tish'g-an, [It. TiziAtfo, t6t-se-a'no; Fr. LK
TITIEN, leh te'se'aN'; Ger. TIZIAN, tit-se-an',] or, more
fully, Tiziano Vecellio, (vi-chel'le-o,) the greatest
painter of the Venetian school, was born at Capo del
Cadore, in Venetia, in 1477. He studied for a short
time with Sebastiano Zuccati, and afterwards became
a pupil of Giovanni Bellini. He was intimate with
Giorgione, his fellow-pupil, to whose example or influ-
ence some critics ascribe the fact that Titian acquired
a bolder and more vigorous style than that of Bellini
and other Venetian painters. In 1512 he was em-
ployed by the Venetian government to paint the hall
of the grand council, in which he represented the
" Homage of Frederick Barbarossa to the Pope."
About 1514 he was invited to Ferrara by Alphonso I.,
for whom he painted a beautiful oil-picture of " Bacchus
and Ariadne," and another of a " Pharisee showing
Tribute-Money to Christ," (now at Dresden.) At Fer-
rara he formed a friendship with the poet Ariosto, whose
portrait he painted. Having returned to Venice, he
painted in 1516 a celebrated picture of the " Assumption
of the Virgin," which is one of his best works, and is
now in the Academy of Venice. He married about
1524, and had several children. He produced about
1528 an admirable picture of "The Death of Saint
Peter." "Titian's power," says Ruskin, "culminates
in the ' Assumption,' the ' Peter Martyr,' and the ' Pre-
sentation of the Virgin.' " About 1530 he was invited
to Bologna by Charles V., and painted a portrait of that
emperor, whom (according to some accounts) he accom-
panied to Spain in 1533. He visited Rome in 1545,
painted an excellent portrait of Paul III., and returned
to Venice in 1546. Titian received the title of Count-
Palatine from Charles V. He painted for Philip II. of
Spain a number of works, among which are "The Last
Supper" and a " Sleeping Venus." His subjects were
mostly religious. As a portrait-painter he has never
been surpassed. In the opinion of many critics, he was
the greatest colorist that ever lived. He also excelled
in landscape. " All landscape grandeur," says Ruskin,

" vanishes before that of Titian and Tintoret ; and this
is true of whatever these two giants touched. . . . The
religion of Titian is like that of Shakspeare, occult
behind his magnificent equity. . . . The Venetian mind,
and Titian's especially, as the central type of it, was
wholly realist, universal, and manly." ("Modern Paint-
ers.") He refused the invitations of several sovereigns
who wished to attract him to their courts, and preferred
to reside at Venice. Among his intimate friends were
Pietro Aretino, and Sansovino the architect. He con-
tinued to paint until he was ninety-eight years old ; but
his last works are not equal to those of his prime. He
died at Venice in August, 1576.
