This grand, large-scale sheet is a rare and splendid example of Giambattista Tiepolo's early style. It is a beautifully rendered configuration, with da sotto in sù foreshortening and dramatic use of light and shade to emphasize the asymmetrical quality of the composition.  Very little is known about Giambattista's initial development as a draughtsman and early drawings, like the present sheet, are rare.  Stylistically, his works from circa 1715 to 1720 are characterised by strong hatching, and a concentration on brilliant and dramatic light effects.  This technique, here employed so strikingly, illustrates the important influence that Tiepolo's master, Piazzetta, had on his early work and the penmanship also demonstrates a knowledge of the drawings of Pietro Testa (1612-1650).

Other similar drawings, in a comparable, engraver-like style, are known from this important, formative period of the artist's career (see Canterbury, The Royal Museum, Guardi, Tiepolo and Canaletto, 1985, no. 16; Cambridge, Fogg Art Museum, Tiepolo, A Bicentenary Exhibition, 1970, no. 1; M. Levey, Tiepolo, New Haven and London 1986, p. 9, fig ii).
