Special Exhibitions

Giambattista and Domenico Tiepolo: Master Drawings from the Anthony J. Moravec Collection
October 1, 2016 to February 5, 2017
Judi and Milt Stewart Hexagon Gallery, first floor

This exhibition highlights the most important gift of Old Master drawings in the Eskenazi Museum of Art's seventy-five year history. In 2010, Anthony J. Moravec, a Columbus, Indiana, businessman, donated twenty-four drawings by the eighteenth-century Italian master Giambattista Tiepolo, his son Domenico, and several of their contemporaries. The centerpiece is a group of a dozen drawings from Domenico Tiepolo's New Testament cycle. These large pen, brush, and ink drawings are not studies for other works, as was more typical of the period but rather unique designs that showcase the artist's deep understanding of the religious subject matter and his careful observation of the world around him. The exhibition's guest curator and catalogue author Adelheid M. Gealt--the Eskenazi Museum of Art's Director Emeritus and an expert on Domenico's drawings--believes that the series (numbering 320 known sheets) represents a feat unparalleled in the history of art.

His smart, postmodern pictures delight viewers, while challenging their perceptions.
