Tiepolo

Staatsgalerie Stuttgart

11 Oct 2019 - 2 Feb 2020

With lesser-known religious canvases and landscapes alongside large-scale history scenes, this exhibition looks beyond the dreamlike, ornamental quality of Tiepolo’s painting to focus on the artist’s skill as a storyteller, combining high drama with subtle humour. Find out more from the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart’s website.
