'The Banquet of Cleopatra', 1743-1744. One of the most important commissions carried out by Tiepolo in the 1740s was, without a doubt, the decoration of the Palazzo Labia in Venice. Tiepolo's scenes, The Meeting of Anthony and Cleopatra and The Banquet of Cleopatra, are staged within an illusory architecture, the scenic framework lending them a theatrical character. From the collection of the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia.
