Analyses Tintoretto's mythologies as satirical and popularizing alternatives to Titian's courtly-humanist works, such as his poesie for King Philip II of Spain. Notes Tintoretto's debunking approach as analogous to the farces performed in contemporary theatre, and Tintoretto's connections with leading playwrights and poligrafi such as Andrea Calmo and Anton Francesco Doni.
