Artists in the Spotlight: Giovanni Battista Tiepolo
Portrait von Giovanni Battista Tiepolo Although the Venice-born Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, one of the most important painters in northern Italy - at the time when the epochs of the Baroque and Rococo were just recovering from their heyday - has gone down in art history, he gained high esteem in his lifetime even outside of his native country Create. His magnificent pictures, epic scenes and elaborate ornamental motifs gave him commissions from influential figures of the 18th century, which included, for example, the bishop of Undine. However, he realized the "work of his life" in Germany: within just one year (1752-1753) he created a ceiling fresco covering around 580 square meters in the Würzburg Residence and thus the largest coherent part of the world. When, about two decades later, classicism was steadily gaining in popularity, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo had to come to terms with an immense decline in his fame. Not only were there more and more orders, last completed works of art were even not issued. Due to this precipitation and his advanced age, he eventually died in Madrid, Spain, because his health in 1770 made a return to Italy impossible. In 2003, he was named in honor of an asteroid (43775 Tiepolo) after the artist.
