Tiepolo and the pictorial intelligence - Alpers and Baxandall - two of the most innovative art historians - invite us to rediscover Tiepolo, or to put it more precisely, they show us how to look at his pictures in order to understand the means employed by the artist, the extraordinary character of his painting to recognize. Using the numerous mostly colored illustrations, the reader and the authors follow Tiepolo's creative process from the first pen drawings to small oil sketches to the large frescoes. / The exact, almost criminalistic tracing of motifs and painting technique in Tiepolo's work gives this volume its tension. The heart of the book is the investigation of his best and greatest work, the ceiling fresco 'The four continents' in the stairwell of the Würzburg residence. This magnificent ensemble of baroque painting is also the largest painting in existence. To show how carefully Tiepolo incorporated light into his art, the fresco was re-photographed in different natural light conditions for this book. The book closes with an annotated guide for travelers in the footsteps of Tiepolo, who lists all works as far as they are still preserved at their original destination. / With their ingenious and well-founded work, Alpers and Baxandall give modern art research new impulses.
