Giambattista Tiepolo: Venetian Itineraries
"Giambattista Tiepolo can well be called the "painter of Venice", not only for the vast number of works he created but also for the lifelong energy he dedicated to his oeuvre. More than 100 of his works can still be visited at about twenty of the original sites for which they were painted. This book aims to guide the reader-admirer along a Venetian itinerary that can be known and loved. Intelligent visitors will appreciate following the artist's stylistic journey and discovering the painter's itinerary for themselves, from his early, dramatic late-Baroque compositions to the more refined expressions of the precious eighteenth century."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
