A Dance in the Country

Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo Italian

Not on view

Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo assisted his father in numerous decorative enterprises, but his own talent lay in evocative depictions of contemporary life, depicted with an incomparable verve and wit. At the center of this composition, an actress dances with a young man wearing the traditional costume of the commedia dell'arte character Mezzetin. Behind them is the masked, comic character of Punchinello, or Punch, who was a favorite of the artist’s.
