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

Angel Holding Two Scrolls

1739-43
OIL on canvas
Scuola Grande dei Carmini, Venice

Tiepolo's painting on the ceiling of the Sala Capitolare is framed by gilded stucco decoration carried out by Abbondio Stazio and Carpoforo Mazzetti. This decoration stands out not only for its elegant modeling, but also as an example of the integration between sculptural and pictorial forms leading to harmonious results.
