Hey, Simone, love the art—never knew about T before.
How did you discover him?

The first drawing with the onlookers heads/necks veering one way, and the birds another is wonderful. I like the movement in all the drawings, especially the tilting chair in the third which is tilting ever so slightly with the man leaning on it. I saw Tiepolo’s work many years ago (a friend attempted to draw copies). Thanks.

No one seems to believe that one must discriminate between the different
Tiepolos–signed Art Police for Traditional Unconditional Memory.

thank you, the ghosts of gianbattista and lorenzo speak through you, my friend. they don’t want to be given credit where no credit is due. These are the works of GIOVANNI DOMENICO TIEPOLO, not to be confused with his other, not so wobbly-wristed, gifted blood-relations.

Father and son. Yes. These are drawn by the son Domenico
