Domenico Tiepolo: A New Testament
Published to accompany the exhibition in October 2006 at The Frick Collection, this major work of art history assembles, presents, and documents for the first time a cycle of 313 drawings of scenes from the New Testament by the 18th-century Venetian draftsman Domenico Tiepolo (1727–1804). Introductory chapters provide a history of the drawings and a discussion of the literary and pictorial traditions in which Domenico worked and the complexities of his narrative approach. The catalogue presents full-color reproductions of the drawings, arranged to follow the New Testament narrative.
