Giambattista and Domenico Tiepolo: Master Drawings from the Anthony J. Moravec Collection will be featured in a special exhibition at the Eskenazi Museum of Art.
The book parallels an exhibition of twenty-four drawings donated to the museum by Indiana businessman Anthony J. Moravec. The drawings date to the 18th century and were composed by Italian artist Giambattista Tiepolo and his son, Domenico.
The Tiepolo's were both master painters and printmakers, and the drawings highlighted in the book and exhibition showcase some of their greatest works. The centerpiece of the collection is a group of a dozen drawings from Domenico's New Testament cycle, focusing on religious subject matter. This group of drawings is a key addition to the Eskanazi Museum of Art, as the museum's New Testament collection is now the third largest of its kind in the world.
The book, Giambattista and Domenico Tiepolo: Master Drawings from the Anthony J. Moravec Collection, will be published on October 3.
