Diana and Actaeon - Titian

Price in US $ - 70.6 million

The story of how Actaeon was turned into a stag for glimpsing the naked goddess Diana has inspired artists through the centuries. Diana and Actaeon is considered to be one of the greatest works by the Italian Renaissance master Titian.

Titian was one of the most versatile of Italian painters, equally adept with portraits, landscape backgrounds, and mythological and religious subjects.
