Venetian School.

Giovanni Battista Tiepolo came from a wealthy family. His father Domenico di Giovanni Tiepolo, a ship’s captain, died in 1697, leaving six children from his marriage to Orsola Jugali. Tiepolo was enrolled in the Venetian painters’ guild in 1717, and in 1719 he married Cecilia Guardi, sister of the painter Francesco Guardi. Nine children were born of this union: five sons, of whom two (Giovanni Domenico and Lorenzo) became artists, and four daughters. Tiepolo trained under Gregorio Lazzarini, who enjoyed a considerable reputation in Italy at this time, but the young artist seems to have preferred to model his early work on that of Paolo Caliari and the more delicate Giambattista Piazzetta, before developing a mature style of his own. Together, Tiepolo and Guardi breathed new life into the Venetian school in the 18th century; however the jealousy and intrigues of Anton Raphael Mengs seem to have cast a shadow over the last years of Tiepolo’s life. Tiepolo’s work shows that he had a powerfully creative imagination. For the first 20 or so years of his career, he worked in Venice and the Veneto region. His earliest works were probably the frescoes he painted for the chapel of St Theresa in the church of the Scalzi in Venice (c. 1720). In 1726 he decorated the chapel of the Holy Sacrament in Udine Cathedral, and also worked in the archbishop’s palace. In 1731 he was in Milan, working in Palazzo Archinto and Palazzo Arcugnani. In 1733 he went to Bergamo, where he painted the ceiling of the Colleoni Chapel with ...

Had he lived longer, Pierre Charles Tremolière would certainly have been counted among the best decorators of the 18th century. He was the son of an Angevin gentleman who died young and whose wife soon remarried.

Under the patronage of the count of Caylus, however, he did obtain a scholarship and set off for Rome in 1728 with five other scholarship holders: the painters Bernard, Subleyras and Blanchet, the sculptor Michel René Slodtz, and the architect Étienne Le Bon....

Schildersbent.

Little was known of Valentin's life until comparatively recently and our knowledge is still incomplete. His father may have been a master glazier in Coulommiers and there may have been other artists in the family. In 1862, Anatole Dauverge claimed he was a member of the famous Boullongne or Boullogne family, which had its origins in either Boulogne or Bologna. We do not know whether Valentin de Boulogne received his training in Paris or Fontainebleau. He certainly went as a very young man to Rome, probably about 1612, and it was there he picked up the forename Moïse [Moses], which is probably only a corruption of 'monsu', a word Italians used at that time to designate Frenchmen....
