Images of Light and Air: The Art of Giambattista Tiepolo and his Son
The Venetian painter Giambattista Tiepolo was one of the greatest artists of the rococo period, creating shimmering images to decorate the churches and palaces of eighteenth century Venice. His fame spread across Europe, and his remarkable illusionistic frescoes can be found in Wurzburg and Madrid, as well as the villas and houses of the Veneto.
This lecture examines his paintings, and those of his son, Giandomenico, made as the thousand-year-old Republic of Venice drew to its end and Napoleon changed the face of Europe.
