Religious Ceiling Frescoes of Giambattista Tiepolo

To study the religious ceiling frescoes of Giambattista Tiepolo for the churches in his native Venice. This aspect of Tiepolo's art is frequently overlooked but it an important aspect of his oeuvre and is important, too, because it provides clues to Venice's place in the split between the sacred and secular life in the 18th century. Works studied will be those in the church of the Discalced Carmelites, for the Pieta, for the Scuola del Carmine, and for the Gesuati. PI is particularly interested in the relationship of art with its cultural milieu.
