Item description for Giambattista Tiepolo Paintings and Frescoes by Massimo Gemin...

Published to coincide with an exhibition in Venice and New York to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the birth of Italian 18th-century painter, Giambattista Tiepolo, this study explores the various aspects of his work. Essays by eight American and European authorities illuminate his development: his mastery of mythological and poetic subjects; his deeply moving religious pictures; and his rare excursions into portraiture and studies of the ideal head. It also describes a prominent feature of Tiepolo's work; his method of progression from initial ideas - realized in dazzling small-scale oil sketches - to large canvases and frescoes. Written for the scholar and general reader alike, the text is supported by illustrations of Tiepolo's works and those of his predecessors and contemporaries.

Reviews - What do customers think about Giambattista Tiepolo Paintings and Frescoes?

a communion with the gods  May 23, 2001
When I was young I used to think that Tiepolo was a Renaissance painter.A contemporary of Raphael, I thought, perhaps a real live rival of Titian and Tintoretto. But as I found out this languorous painter was in reality an 18th C Venitian virtuoso. After a while, still in awe, I started to view him as a superb anachronism, and like he belonged, also, atop the Sistine Chapel somewhat.If Caravaggio astonishes with his inner turmoil. Tiepolo vis-a-vis seems to enjoy the purity of soul, of a monk. His brush seems pulled by a determined higher force. Christianity was sometimes his great medium, and he continuously uses every religious legend to express something divine that was in him, naturally. He is as pure as Praxiteles. And William Barcham deliniates Tiopolo's life as ordely and purposely as can be. The lucid preface, from Venice to Madrid. Tiepolo, a life, seemingly in a higher realm, dedicated to his art. But the many grandiose frescoes, beautifully illustrated here, don't need any words, really.
