NOTE.--Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, an eminent painter, born in Venice, in 1697. Lanzi says he was the last of the Venetian artists who acquired for himself a great reputation, and became celebrated in Italy, Germany and Spain. He became an assiduous imitator of Paul Veronese, whom, though, inferior to him in the airs of his heads he very nearly approached in his drapery and his coloring. Tiepolo acquired an immense reputation and executed many works for the churches and public edifices of Venice, Rome, Milan, Padua and other cities. He died at Madrid in 1770.
