The last great artist of the Baroque era, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo was a master of the Rococo style. He decorated numerous palaces across Europe with frescoes full of turbulent movement and vibrant colour. He excelled in painting magnificent ceiling frescoes, summoning aerial visions of the ancient world that have never been matched in their depth of expression and sheer scale of achievement. The inventiveness and variety that characterise his fresco cycles secure his place in the pantheon of great artists, continuing the tradition of Giotto and Michelangelo. Delphi's Masters of Art Series presents the world's first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail.
