Description

This subject was one to which Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo returned many times, creating numerous variations on the theme.   The group is dateable to circa 1770 and many are housed in various public and private collections. Thirteen were offered in the Beauchamp sale at Christie’s on 15th June 1965 and the greatest number is in the Print Room at Stuttgart.1  There is only one known painting of the subject by the artist, in the Museo Stibbert, Florence, but it is horizontal in format and cannot be directly related to the drawings.2
