The Tiepolo convex mirror was influenced by one of the most gifted artists of the 18th century in Europe, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo. Based in Venice he infused religious and mythical subjects with gorgeous sunshine, humor and mystery. His color sense was a miracle of lightness. A master of ceiling frescoes Tiepolo exploded the confines of architecture and opened it to a vision of fantastic weightlessness.
Among the many books tracing the arc of Tiepolo’s life and art but there is one that investigates the darkness underneath the fluffy clouds and flying angels, Tiepolo Pink by Roberto Calasso.
My company, Evans & Brown, painted riffs on Tiepolo’s style many times.
