Time Out says

For the first time in over 300 years, 5 out of 6 mythological paintings by Titian, originally created as series, are reunited. Based on the Greek myths recorded by Ovid, the exhibited artworks include Diana and Actaeon’ and ‘Diana and Callisto’, both favourites of the artist Lucian Freud (he once described Diana's "amazing toes" and re-painted one of his own nudes after seeing how Titian tackled a belly button). When they were painted, Titian called them "Poesie", which means they're the visual art version of poetry. Whatever word you want to use, the simple fact is this: they're stunning. Don't miss.
