    Title: David and Goliath



    Medium: Oil on Canvas

    Copyright: Public Domain


    David prays after decapitating Goliath. The opening in the sky indicates divine approval. The painting is now in the church of Santa Maria della Salute in Venice. It was originally made as a ceiling painting for the Santo Spirito in Isola. Titian made two other ceiling paintings for that church, one on Cain and Abel and one on the Sacrifice of Isaac. The paintings have similar compositions. They have clear diagonal lines and there is balance in the poses of the figures.
