Giovanni Battista Tiepolo
VENICE 1696 - 1770 MADRID
A STANDING FIGURE, SEEN IN PROFILE, IN A LONG COAT AND WEARING A LARGE SOFT HAT

Provenance

Probably Count Algarotti-Corniani, Venice;
Edward Cheney, Badger Hall, Shropshire and by descent to Colonel Alfred Capel Cure;
sale, London, Christie's, 14 July 1914;
E. Parsons and Sons, London

Catalogue Note

Similar single figure studies by Tiepolo were contained in several albums titled: Sole Figure Vestite. One such a volume is preserved intact in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.1 Three others were sold at Christie's in 1914, where they were bought by E. Parsons and Sons and dispersed after the First World War. This study is very similar to a sheet in the Victoria and Albert Museum, in which a figure turned to the left with a head-dress with two plumes is holding a folio in his right hand .2
