THE MOST FAMOUS VENETIAN'S PAINTERS: TIEPOLO

Venice 1696 - Madrid 1770 Tiepolo's rise to fame began during his study under a secondary master in Venice, Gregorio Lazzarini. In fact he was only 19 years old when he painted his first public work, the Sacrifice of Isaac (1724), in the Church of Santa Maria dei Derelitti, also called the Ospedaletto. He is first listed in the fraglia of Venetian painters in 1717. With the frescoes of the Church of Santa Maria degli Scalzi and in Palazzo Sandi (1724-1725), he revealed his own individual style. In the Church of the Gesuati, he frescoed the vault with St. Dominic Instituting the Rosary. But it was only with the decoration of Palazzo Labia (1746-1747) that the painter achieved his most surprising scenographic effects. During these years he was active not only in Venice (1) (2) (3) but also in Udine (1726-1729), Milan (1730; 1740), Vicenza (1743) and Wurzburg (1750-1753) where he decorated the Episcopal Residenz. Back in Venice at the end of 1753, Tiepolo frescoed the Church of the Pietà, the Villa Valmarana in Vicenza and the ceiling of Villa Pisani at Stra. The master was not only an excellent painter but also a prolific draughtsman and engraver, and his series of Capricci and Scherzi are masterpieces of 18th century etching. It was June 1762 when he and his son arrived in Madrid , invited by Charles III to decorate the Royal Palace. Before his death in 1770 he completed seven canvases for the church of Pascuale Baylon in Aranjunez.
