     Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, or Giovanni Tiepolo, better referred to as Gian-battista or Giam-Battista Tiepolo, was born on March 5, 1696 in Venice, Italy. Giovanni was a ''Rococo'' & ''Baroque'' fashion Italian painter & Printmaker, regarded for his unconventional fashion of representing ancient historical myths, sacred legends, and the scriptures through large art pieces. The artist celebrated his creative preference and delusion in those magnificent designs. Active in Veneto, Germany, and Spain, he became primarily known for his ''Grand Manner'Manner' frescos while reaching considerable appreciation as a drafter and an etcher. 

     Giovanni was born to Domenico Tiepolo, who was a sea captain, and his wife, Rosetta. Tiepolo'sTiepolo's confronted many problems after the premature death of Domenico, within a year of the painter's birth. Young Giovanni had his early studying around 1710, under a mediocre painter, Gregorio Lazzarin, who was pretty problematic in his style. By the age of 19, Tiepolo had advanced his own uniquely distinctive style. 

     In 1717, he left Lazzarini'sLazzarini's studio and turned into given get admission to the well-known to portray called ''Fraglia'' (Guild of Painters) and in 1719, Tiepolo was married to Maria Cecilia Guardi, who was the sister of his fellow painters, and got blessed with nine children, out of which the fine seven survived.

    Tiepolo'sTiepolo's first masterpiece became a cycle of enormous canvases painted to enhance a large reception room in the Ca'' Dolfin, Venice (ca. 1726–29). They depict historical battles and triumphs and allowed Tiepolo to introduce special costumes, historical sculpture, and artifacts, and violent movement that appears at times to spill out of the frames in the paintings and into the room that includes originally set into recesses in the wall, the canvases were surrounded by frescoed frames and complemented through a frescoed ceiling (not by Tiepolo). 

     The Italian artist earned wide acclaim throughout Europe and was appointed to do artwork and frescos for various church buildings throughout Venice. Giovanni'sGiovanni's famous and magnificent works had subdued color and were bright & shadowless, reflecting bright illumination. 

     His debut in Venice was in the shape of huge canvases, including "The Sacrifice of Isaac" (1726-29), designed for the Grand Canal of Venice. Tiepolo'sTiepolo's "Frescos of the tale of Cleopatra" (1746) in the ballroom of Palazzo Labia (Labia Palace) shot him to international fame. During 1751-53, he turned into entrusted with the task of re-adorning the Residence (palace of the Archbishop), Wurzburg with "Frescoes depicting the life of Emperor Frederick I," and altarpieces adorned with the piece of paintings like "Ascension of the Virgin," & "fall of the Angels." 

     In 1753, Tiepolo went back to Venice and was elected as the President of the Academy of Padua. He designed frescos for church buildings, like "The Triumph of Faith" for the Chiesadella Pietà, and the panel designs on "Allegory of Merit Accompanied through Nobility."


    Giovanni traveled significantly to Bergamo, Milan, and Veneto. In 1761, on the invitation of Charles III, he left for Madrid, Spain, to create frescos at the partitions of the Palacio Real (Royal Palace). During 1762-66, the artist worked on this mission, and his incredible creations being "Glory of Spain" for the Throne Room and "The Apotheosis of the Spanish Monarchy" for the Queen'sQueen's Antechamber.


    Many of his works came below the scanner posthumously and had been rated as artificial. Such criticism was mainly attributed to the rise of ''Neo-Classicalism'' with the decline of ''Royal Authoritarianism.''
