Tiepolo

The Capitoline Museums examine the legacy of the prolific Venetian painter and printmaker Giambattista Tiepolo (1696-1770) and his artist sons Giandomenico and Lorenzo.

Tiepolo was known for his angels, cherubs and dazzling colours, and was described by English art historian Sir Michael Levey as "the greatest decorative painter of 18th-century Europe, as well as its most able craftsman."

For the first time in Rome an exhibition is dedicated to the hugely successful artist whose sons contined in his footsteps in the centuries-old Ventian artistic tradition, however they failed to achieve the same recognition as their father.
