Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo

1727 - 1804

Giovanni Domenico was born in Venice, the eldest surviving son of G. B. Tiepolo, whose assistant he became. He worked in Venice, Würzburg and Vicenza. In 1762 he accompanied his father to Madrid, and on his death in 1770 returned to Venice.

Although overshadowed by his father, Giovanni Domenico was a significant painter in his own right. His work is more down to earth and less allegorical than his father's.
