Two Singular Paintings by Tiepolo and Rubens Come to Auction Next Week

Sotheby’s is pleased to announce two major works that will highlight the Master Paintings Evening Sale in New York, January, 29, 2020.  Heading the auction is the masterpiece The Madonna of the Rosary with Angels by Giambattista Tiepolo – the last major altarpiece by the Venetian artist in private hands. The painting, composed in 1735, dates from a period that is considered to be the Tiepolo’s most significant. The canvas displays an early maturity for the artist; the emotion and grandiosity of the Venetian masters Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese are apparent in Tiepolo’s works of the 1730s. [More]
