Right now, the High Museum of Art is displaying two of the greatest paintings of the Italian Renaissance, masterworks by Venetian artist Tiziano Vecelli, better known to the world as Titian.

WABE’s Lois Reitzes recently took a tour of the exhibit “Titian and the Golden Age of Venetian Painting” led by two of its curators: Michael Clarke, Director of the National Gallery of Scotland, which is lending the works from its collection, and David Brenneman, the High Museum’s Director of Collection and Exhibitions.

We hear from Stanley Sasine, who was part of a group of World War II soldiers called Merrill’s Marauders. They were tasked with getting the Japanese out of Burma, now Myanmar. Stanley was one of the few who survived to see the Marauders’ last battle. Today he’s 86, and he told his story to his grandson, Adrian Sasine. Parts of this conversation recall a violent scene, which may be unsettling to some listeners.
