View of the ballrom toward the west wall

Palazzo Labia, Venice

This view shows the fresco decoration by Tiepolo. The story of Antony and Cleopatra is illustrated in a series of paintings framed by illusionistic architecture created by Girolamo Mengozzi Colonna. The decoration, which covers the entire room, is unique in 18th-century Venice.
