ジョヴァンニ・バッティスタ・ティエポロ（Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, 1696年3月5日 - 1770年3月27日）は、ルネサンス最後期のイタリアの画家。
Tiepolo's Apotheosis of Spain in the royal palace of Madrid
While Tiepolo is considered the end of a line of olympian Venetian painters, his style differs much from that of Giorgione, Titian, Veronese, and Tintoretto. Like Titian and Ricci, Tiepolo was renowned and painted for royalty outside of the island city. Within three decades of Tiepolo's death, the world outside Venice would overcome the Republic, and La Serenissima would disintegrate after a few volleys of Napoleonic grapeshot.
In style, Tiepolo has more affinity with Ricci, Piazzetta, and Federico Bencovich in his most fluid elaboration. He is a shadowless Rubens. His populated historical set-pieces are enveloped in a regal luminosity, and pompously decorated. It is unfair to judge Tiepolo as lacking pupils and followers, since, for one, his children developed similar, but distinctive styles.
He is principally known for his fresco work, particularly his panegyric ceilings. These followed the Baroque tradition of Pietro da Cortona and Andrea Pozzo, and attempted to open the closed space to the sky, with a view from below of vast compositions that merged with the delicate ornamentation of the Rococo architecture and sculpture. His frescoes, such as Palazzo Valmarana in Vicenza, not only peer into the world of mythology, but are meant to relocate the viewer into their midst. The earliest example of this is perhaps his canvases in the Ca' Dolfin, which allowed Tiepolo to introduce exuberant costumes, classical sculpture, and action that appears to spill from the frames into the room. Originally set into recesses, they were surrounded with frescoed frames.
Other than his earliest works, his style is a distinct move from the Baroque, where dark, closed spaces illuminated with high contrast were popular; Tiepolo's daylight illuminates far more gently with a confident, sunny palette. His use of perspective is notable; in Palazzo Labia, Venice, he collaborated with an expert in perspective, Girolamo Mengozzi Colonna. The fact that Colonna also designed sets for opera highlights the increasing tendency towards composition as a staged fiction.
