About this title


This is a study of the frescos painted by Tiepolo for the Prince Bishop of Wurzburg in the Imperial Hall and staircase of the Bishop's Palace between 1750 and 1753. The book provides a history of fresco painting and discusses the intricacies, iconography and importance of each scene at Wurzburg, and their development from the sketches to the final work. It includes a description of the Wurtzburg Palace, details of relevant court ceremony, and the significance of the commission and its patron, as well as an illustrated chronology of Tiepolo's life and work.
