Minneapolis Institute of Arts



Institution Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo was the son of Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, the foremost Venetian painter of the eighteenth century. In 1757, Domenico began a series of etchings, <I>Raccolta di Teste</I> (Collection of Heads), based on oil sketches of about twenty imaginary portraits of philosophers painted by his father. Some time later, Domenico himself painted a series of portrait heads, based on the etchings. This painting derives from number 8 in Book I, published in 1758.
