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, W├╝rzburg 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.
