Works of Art

This summer Stephen Ongpin Fine Art will present an exhibition of over twenty drawings by Giambattista and Giandomenico Tiepolo, a father and son who were two of the most significant draughtsmen of the 18th century in Venice. The exhibition, which will be accompanied by a fully illustrated, scholarly catalogue, will showcase works characteristic of both artists’ extensive and varied drawn oeuvres. Drawings by Giambattista to be shown include caricatures, ceiling studies, head and drapery studies in red chalk, and works of more unique subjects less frequently seen over his long career. From Domenico’s productive career as a draughtsman will be shown works of biblical and mythological subjects, together with two of his charming drawings of animals. Many of the drawings come from private collections, and several have been unseen for many years.
