TIEPOLO, GIOVANNI DOMENICO
Based on first-hand inspection of the original, Prof. Bernard Aikema has attributed the present work as an early work by Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo. The impressive quality of this oil study has hitherto been considered to be a work by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo. We thank Prof. Aikema for his academic guidance and support.
