Artist: Hyperion, for example, inspiring one (6)


I believe the answer is:


'artist' is the definition.
(16th-century painter)

'hyperion for example inspiring one' is the wordplay.
'hyperion for example' becomes 'Titan' (hyperion is a kind of Titan).
'inspiring' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'one' becomes 'I' (Roman numeral).
'titan' enclosing 'i' is 'TITIAN'.

(Other definitions for titian that I've seen before include "He painted" , "artist from Venice" , "Sixteenth century Venetian painter" , "Italian painter; hair colour" , "Italian painter of the Venetian school, patronised by Philip II of Spain" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
