著名威尼斯畫家喬瓦尼・巴蒂斯塔・帖波洛(Giovanni Battista Tiepolo)的《玫瑰聖母與天使》領銜紐約蘇富比1月29日舉行的西洋古典油畫晚拍。畫作最後以17,349,000美元售出。
Sotheby’s is pleased to announce that one of the greatest works by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo remaining in private hands was offered as the headline work in their Master Paintings Evening Sale in New York on 29 January 2020. The artwork was sold for 17,349,000USD.
Painted in 1735, The Madonna of the Rosary with Angels is an important early work by the great Venetian artist, dating from a period that is considered one of the artist’s most significant and one that brought him recognition as among the greatest painters of 18th-century Europe. Other Tiepolo altarpieces from this time hang in prominent churches and museums throughout the world, establishing the forthcoming auction as a rarified event. Estimated to achieve in excess of US$15 million, the monumental painting is one of the rarest and most significant works by Tiepolo ever to come to market.
Tiepolo is widely regarded as Venice’s foremost artist in the 18th century, whose decorative and imaginative style not only had a profound and lasting impact on Italian art, but was also a vital precursor to Romanticism and the Belle Époque movements. Major works of such astounding quality by Tiepolo are rare on the international market, for much of his work was carried out in frescos and altarpieces that remain in situ.
