'A rider leaning on his horse', c1740s, (1928). 'The Rider Standing by His Horse', pen over a pencil sketch for an etching, 'Le chevalier à pied près de son cheval', from the series of the Capricci which appeared in a collection of Venetian graphic art in 1749. Victoria & Albert Museum, London. Italian Venetian painter and printmaker Giovanni Battista Tiepolo (1696-1770), worked not only in Italy, but also in Germany and Spain. He was commissioned to carry out frescoes in churches and palaces, and was elected President of the Academy of Padua. As well as his large-scale majestic works, he also produced etchings and oil paintings, and is widely regarded as one of the most important artists of the period.
