    was a Venetian artist who trained with the history painter Gregorio Lazzarini He studied and assimilated the style of Veronese Sebastiano Ricci and Giambattista Piazzetta and the latter s use of chiaroscuro is evident in his early works Tiepolo s first important commission was the decoration of the Episcopal palace in Udine executed between 1726 and 1729 in which he abandoned his earlier use of dark tones and moved towards a bright clear palette and a dramatic use of perspective with an intense type of illumination This approach would be evident in the remainder of his oeuvre His next decorative scheme was for the Colleoni chapel in Bergamo 1732 33 followed by canvases for the church of the Gesuati 1737 39 in Venice and the decoration of the Palazzo Labia in that city Between 1750 and 1753 he was in Würzburg working on the decoration of the Prince Bishop s residence In 1756 Tiepolo returned to Venice and became president of the Accademia One year later he was involved in the decoration of the Villa Valmarana and that of the Ca Rezzonico In 1762 he is documented in Madrid where he was summoned by Charles III of Spain to work on the royal palace Tiepolo was equally skilled in fresco and easel painting and was a remarkable draughtsman and printmaker Among his series of prints were the Capriccios of 1743 and the Scherzi He was assisted on his major projects by his sons Giandomenico and Lorenzo and by Gerolamo Mengozzi while the latter also assisted him on the execution of some of the architectural settings in his fresco cycles Tiepolo s creativity and invention and the skill of the theatrical settings used in his compositions all painted with a rich brilliant palette make him the leading figure in 18th century

    Giandomenico Tiepolo was a painter printmaker and draughtsman He began his training at a very early age in the studio of his father Giambattista Tiepolo with whom he worked on numerous projects throughout his life In addition by the age of twenty he was already an independent master and received commissions from Brescia Venice and Zianigo Among Giandomenico s first projects as an individual master is the series of fourteen paintings on the Via Crucis painted for the Oratory of the Cross adjoining the church of San Polo in Venice From 1750 to 1753 he worked with his father in Würzburg and also produced his own compositions such as The Minuet Museo Nacional d Art de Catalunya Barcelona In general Giandomenico s historical compositions are close to his father s style which makes their attribution difficult on occasions In his genre scenes however he reveals himself as a highly original and imaginative painter One example of the latter style is his decoration of the Villa Valmarana on the outskirts of Vicenza in which Giandomenico painted scenes of Oriental fantasies and leisure activities such as Country People eating outdoors In 1762 he accompanied his father to Spain where he was principally active as his assistant although his work there expresses considerable creative freedom for example the Allegory of the Spanish Monarchy Palacio Real Madrid On the death of his father Giandomenico returned to Venice where he remained active and was appointed president of the Accademia in 1780 During the last ten years of his life he executed some of the frescoes in the family villa at Zianigo a project started in 1759 and completed in 1797 now Museo Ca Rezzonico Venice These depict the life of Punchinello a popular figure from the Commedia dell Arte Giandomenico s drawings and prints have
