Giovanni Battista Tiepolo
(Italian, 1696 - 1770)
This person is associated with: Rococo

Italian Rococo painter from Venice who trained under Gregorio Lazzarini.

Tiepolo was one of the most famous artists of the 18th century, invited in many European courts. A prolific artist, he produced over 800 paintings - not to mention frescos - and about 2400 drawings. He was particularly celebrated for his ceilings of Venice and Madrid palaces.

Imitating Giaquinto, he moved to Madrid at the request of the King of Spain, and even took the place of the Neapolitan painter.

He was the leader of Italian Rococo, which was less frivolous than its French counterpart and more focused on biblical/historical subjects, as a continuation of Baroque.

He was the master to his son Giandomenico Tiepolo.
