Focused on a lesser-known aspect of Tiepolo's oeuvre, this scholarly catalogue showcases a selection of 63 oil sketches spanning the career of the major Venetian painter (1696-1770), including numerous preparatory studies for the artist's celebrated altarpieces and frescoes as well as presentation pieces and images created to record finished works. Extensive analyses and full-page reproductions of the exhibited paintings complement four essays that review Tiepolo's life and career, examine technical aspects of his modelli and their role in his creative process, and trace the historical development of the oil sketch in Italy.
