Summary: Giambattista and Domenico Tiepolo documents an important collection of master drawings donated by an individual to the IU Art Museum, including five drawings by the celebrated Venetian genius Giambattista Tiepolo and sixteen drawings by his most famous son Domenico Tiepolo. Twelve of the sixteen form part of Domenico’s most important drawing series—his exhaustive visual exploration of the New Testament. Also included are two drawings that were discovered after the publication of Domenico Tiepolo: A New Testament (IUP, 2006) and are seen here for the first time. Gealt and Knox are world-renowned experts on Tiepolo and this book will serve as a useful handbook to understanding their work as draftsmen. This beautiful illustrated work will appeal to art lovers, biblical scholars, and those who value the unique work of the Tiepolos.
