The entire corpus of the Venetian artist’s magnificent graphic
production will be displayed in the Galleria d’Arte Antica of Udine
Castle along with a selection of his drawings, works directly linked to
the themes of the engravings. All flanked by oils by Tiepolo and his
followers and the cycles of frescoes that Giambattista Tiepolo and
his son Giandomenico left behind them in the city and that gave
Udine the name of the “City of Tiepolo”. With their aesthetic and executive
quality, these works are a unique body in the history of graphic art.

The etchings and drawings will be accompanied by
original plates, the matrixes for the engravings, to paint a clear
picture of the whole process that led to their production. All this
along a route that offers a unique opportunity to take a step closer
to Tiepolo’s secrets, without presuming to reach their very heart but
certain of the priceless thrill of seeing them. Let yourself be
enchanted or, rather, spellbound.
