Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo
(1727 - 1804)
Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo was active/lived in Italy. Giovanni Tiepolo is known for religious, allegorical, and landscape painting.
Giovanni Domenico was the eldest son of Giovanni Battista Tiepolo and
apprenticed in his father's workshop like his younger brother Lorenzo. A
commission to create 14 works on canvas for the aisles of the Church of
San Paolo in Venice provided Giovanni Domenico with his debut as an
independent painter in 1747. However, Giovanni continued to assist his
father occasionally, such as for the decoration of the Würzburg
residence 1751/52. He painted the overdoors with scenes from the lives
of Roman emperors.
Giovanni also cooperated with his father once more
for the painting of the Villa Valmara in Vicenza, another highly
significant commission. Following his father's death in Madrid, Giovanni
returned to Venice in late 1770, where he continued to paint mainly
religious subjects for the next 30 years.
Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo is
also well-known for his superb drawings and engravings. Several small scale paintings by
Giovanni Domenico are kept in Budapest, New York and the Museo Civico in
Padua. Domenico's large
format “Adoration of the Magi” (1753) is kept in the Alte Pinakothek in Munich.
