Title: Giambattista Tiepolo: I dipinti - Opera ...
Publisher: Arsenale Editrice srl
Book Condition: Good
Book Description Arsenale Editrice srl, Venezia, 1993. Hardcover. Book Condition: vg. First edition. Folio. 550pp. Original illustrated dust-jacket over black cloth with blind-stamped lettering on spine. Book housed in its pictorial paper covered slipcase. This lavishly illustrated catalogue raisonne showcases the impressive body of work by a true master. The hundreds of b/w and color photographic reproductions reveal enormous variety within his oeuvre, demonstrating that he was one of the presiding geniuses of the European imagination, the greatest artist of 18th century Venice, and, excepting only Goya and David, of 18th century Europe. Also includes valuable information on Tiepolo's formation; his mastery of mythological and poetic subjects; his deeply moving religious pictures; his rare excursions into portraiture and studies of ideal heads; and the process by which he proceeded from initial ideas to larger scale canvases and frescoes. Written for the scholar and general reader alike, these texts are lavishly supported by illustrations of Tiepolo's works and those of his predecessors and contemporaries. A documented chronology of Tiepolo's life and art, detailed provenances, references, and a bibliography are provided. Previous owner's blind stamp on title page, and stamp at lower paper edge. Text in Italian. Slipcase, dust-jacket, binding and interior in overall very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 36446
