Tiepolo in Milan: The Lost Frescoes of Palazzo Archinto commemorates an extraordinary fresco cycle by the Venetian painter Giambattista Tiepolo. Painted for Palazzo Archinto in Milan, the frescoes were destroyed in a bombing during World War II. Only a series of black-and-white photographs, taken between 1897 and the late 1930s, preserves the frescoes’ appearance, but a number of preparatory drawings and paintings provide precious information. These—along with other drawings and prints by Tiepolo and some books—have been reunited for the first time in order to bring to life these extraordinary works of art.
“This book will serve as a stand-alone contribution to Tiepolo scholarship and is a superbly done exhibition catalogue.”
