TIEPOLO, Giovanni Battista
(b. 1696, Venezia, d. 1770, Madrid)


Oil on canvas
Basilica di San Marco, Venice

This is one of Tiepolo's most interesting and least known religious works. Set in a room (the Sacristy of the Canonici) that is rarely visited, in the midst of golden mosaics, it offers the excitement of a true discovery.
