Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo: 'The Procession of the Trojan Horse into Troy'
This painting is part of the group: Two Sketches depicting the Trojan Horse
This and 'The Building 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 Trojans, who worship the horse, bring the Greek gift into the City. Later the Greek soldiers emerge and begin the sack of Troy.

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