Tiepolo’s remarkable drawing The Virgin and Child Seated on a Globe

Tiepolo, Guardi, and Their World: Eighteenth-Century Venetian Drawings

The Morgan Library & Museum / September 27, 2013 - January 5, 2014 / New York, New York


The eighteenth century witnessed Venice’s second Golden Age. Although the city was no longer a major political power, it reemerged as an artistic capital, with such gifted artists as Giambattista Tiepolo, his son Domenico, Canaletto, and members of the Guardi family executing important commissions from the church, nobility, and bourgeoisie, while catering to foreign travelers and bringing their talents to other Italian cities and even north of the Alps. Drawn entirely from the Morgan’s collection of eighteenth-century Venetian drawings—one of the world’s finest—Tiepolo, Guardi, and Their World chronicles the vitality and originality of this incredibly vibrant period. The exhibition will be on view from September 27, 2013–January 5, 2014.
