Tiepolo, Giovanni Domenico, Italian painter and draughtsman (1727-1804). Caricature of a gentleman with a walking stick.

Italy, second half of the 18th century.

168 x 107 mm. Pen and brown ink, brown and black wash on paper. Some foxing.


Charming caricature by the Venetian master depicting a liveried gentleman with a tricorne, épée and a walking stick in profile, accentuating the figure's grotesque pointed nose and chin. The drawing can be attributed to Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo, the oldest son and student of Giovanni Battista Tiepolo.

The drawing is very similar to the caricature of a gentleman with walking stick holding and tricorne that is held at the MET (Inv.: 37.165.68).
