Though Reynolds' Discourses posited Venetian art as the Grand Style's antithesis, British artists continued to emphasize color while believing its use to be mechanical. This dissertation examines Titian as a model in British art theory, criticism, and practice from 1768 to 1830. William Blake denounced Venetian color and naturalism; Richard Payne Knight rejected academic art theory and formulated a color-oriented theory that placed Titian and the Venetians at the center of a new history of art; William Hazlitt formulated a color-oriented theory that recognized Titian, especially Titian the portraitist, as painting's greatest figure. "With Hazlitt, art theory finally accorded with British practice."
