Although he burst on the artistic scene when fairly young, a certain amount of ramping up was inevitable. In this post, we take a look at some paintings he made by the time he reached his mid-20s. Click on the images to enlarge.
This is a painting from Tiepolo's mature period indicating where he evolved.
He was about 20 when this was painted. Most artists agree that hands are harder to depict than faces, but here Tiepolo does a decent job on the hands whereas the treatment of the Doge's face is questionable. But the Doge was a patron and helped Tiepolo to become established, so perhaps that's how the man really looked.
These are a pair of works fitted into the architecture of the Santa Maria dei Derelitti (Ospedaletto) in Venice. I find these interesting because of the way Tiepolo includes many facets or planes while constructing the figures.
By this point Tiepolo is settling into his oil-on-canvas style (his mural work was a different matter).
