Domenico Tiepolo (1727-1804): A New Testament October 24, 2006, through January 7, 2007

For the past ten years, Dr. Adelheid M. Gealt, Director, Indiana University Art Museum, and Dr. George Knox, Professor Emeritus, University of British Columbia, have been reconstructing the largest-known New Testament cycle produced by a single artist: 313 large, finished drawings in ink and wash executed by Domenico Tiepolo (1727–1804), one of the foremost Venetian artists active during the second half of the eighteenth century. Combining erudition and sophistication, these virtuoso drawings are moving expressions of personal piety and grand achievements of artistic creativity.
