Giandomenico Tiepolo and His Fantasy Portraits : The Artist at Court
This volume comprises some 20 works by Giandomenico Tiepolo (1727--1804), brother of Lorenzo Tiepolo and son of the legendary Giambattista Tiepolo. Giambattista arrived in Madrid in 1762 at the invitation of King Charles III, with a commission to paint a number of ceilings at the Royal Palace, including the ceiling of the Throne Room. With Giandomenico and Lorenzo as assistants, he received further commissions until his death in Madrid in 1770, at which point Giandomenico decided to return home to Venice. During these years in Spain, while helping to paint frescoes, Giandomenico produced a number of easel paintings and works on paper. A selection of these works is presented here, alongside reproductions of the Tiepolo family's collaborations on the ceilings of the Royal Palace and other paintings by Giambattista (which comprise the first half of the book).
