Tiepolo Punchinello Drawings
January 22, 1980 to March 30, 1980

An exhibition of Domenico Tiepolo's tragicomic and enigmatic Punchinello drawings. Previously shown at the Indiana University Art Museum and the Stanford University Museum of Art, this exhibition was organized by Adelheid Gealt, Curator of Drawings at the Indiana University Museum. About fifty of the original series of one hundred and four sheets from Domenico Tiepolo’s "Divertimento per li regazzi" were on view at The Frick Collection. The entire series was exhibited only once, at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, in 1921, and was subsequently dispersed.
