Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo: 'The Building of the Trojan Horse'
This painting is part of the group: Two Sketches depicting the Trojan Horse
This and 'The Procession of the Trojan Horse', also in the Collection, are part of a series of sketches illustrating a famous passage from Virgil's 'Aeneid' (Book 2): The Greeks build a wooden horse, fill it with armed men and leave it outside the enemy city of Troy.

Painted presumably about 1760, the two pictures are close in style to the work of the artist's father Giambattista.
