Episode Details

In 1514, Giovanni Bellini finished a painting called The Feast of the Gods. Despite the fact that Bellini was an Italian master of the Renaissance, the painting was dramatically changed and repainted by Titian, another great master painter. National Gallery of Art: The Feast of the Gods investigates this mystery with the use of infrared photography, x-rays, and computer-enhanced procedures to find the original work beneath the layers of newer paint. The program was filmed on-location in Venice, Ferrara, and Mantua.
