Titian's Flora, one of the most iconic paintings by the Italian Renaissance master, is among 49 on display at the new exhibition at the Bund One Art Museum in Shanghai.

Opening on March 29, Titian's Flora: Venetian Painting from the Uffizi Galleries includes eight paintings by the master, alongside pieces by other masters of the Venetian school such as Giorgione, Tintoretto, and Veronese.

Some of the exhibits are being displayed outside the Uffizi for the first time, according to Xie Dingwei, founding director of Bund One. The exhibition runs until July 28.

Flora depicts a young woman against a dark background. Gazing with soft eyes toward her right, she wears a white robe, which has slipped partially off her shoulders, revealing her fair skin and part of her left breast. Flora is the goddess of spring and wife of Zephyr, god of the west wind in ancient Greek mythology and in her right hand, she holds a small bouquet of spring flowers in reference to her name.
