Tiepolo - Venice in the North at the Sinebrychoff Museum 22.09.2020, 11.00-12.15

25 August 2020

The fame of the Italian master Giovanni Battista (Giambattista) Tiepolo (1696−1770) spread across Europe early in the 18th century. He soon attracted the attention of great art collectors. Although Giovanni Battista Tiepolo never travelled to Russia or Scandinavia, his paintings did. It is a testimony to the strength of his art that his paintings, drawings and etchings enjoyed a continuous popularity on the art market all through the 19th century and well into the 20th century.

For the first time ever in Finland, the exhibition will bring together more than twenty oil paintings, drawings and etchings by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo and his son Domenico. Masterpieces from important museum collections in Scandinavia, Russia, Great Britain and Italy will highlight the successful dissemination of the art of Tiepolo to the most northern parts of Europe. The exhibition focuses on people, events and the fascinating stories behind the art works.
