GIOVANNI BATTISTA TIEPOLO
Saints Catherine of Siena, Rose of Lima and Agnes of Montepulciano holding the Christ Child
This dramatic study is for Giovanni Battista Tiepolo's arguably most famous altarpiece in Venice, painted in the 1740s for the Dominican Church of the Gesuati on the Zattere. Widely published but thought to be lost, it once belonged to Prince Alexis Orloff's legendary album of Tiepolo drawings dispersed at auction in Paris in 1920.
