Giandomenico Tiepolo (1727-1804). Ten Fantasy Portraits

Giandomenico Tiepolo (1727–1804): Ten fantasy portraits  presents a set of ten oil paintings on canvas by the Venetian artist Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo. Giandomenico was the brother of Lorenzo Tiepolo, and both were the sons of Giambattista Tiepolo, the patriarch of their artistic dynasty–the “Tiepolo factory”, in the words of Andrés Úbeda de los Cobos, Chief Curator of Italian and French Painting in the Museo Nacional del Prado. The three artists had moved to Madrid in 1762, where their principal task was the creation of decorative frescoes on various ceilings in the Royal Palace. They represent ten heads: two old, bearded men with an eastern air; and eight beautiful young women. They can all be dated to around 1768, during the artist’s Spanish period.
