Giovanni Battista Tiepolo: 'Two Orientals seated under a Tree'
This painting is part of the group: Four Decorative Scenes
This is one of four pictures probably painted as a series and probably executed about 1757.

The pictures are documented by etchings of three of them (in reverse) by Domenico and Lorenzo Tiepolo as the work of their father. The only picture with an identifiable story is 'Rinaldo turning in Shame from the Magic Shield', which shows Rinaldo, who has been enchanted by the sorceress Armida. He turns away and throws off his crown of flowers when Ubaldo shows him his image in the magic shield. This is from Tasso, 'Gerusalemme Liberata' (16).
