Ricci: Doge Giovanni I Cornaro

Polo, resonates in canvas shape, pose and color tones Giovanni Battista Tiepolo's immense portrait of Doge Giovanni II Cornaro (G-38), painted c. 1715, now in the Egidio Martini Collection at Museo Ca' Rezzonico in Venice. The Tiepolo portrait was also commissioned for the palace at Campo S. Polo.
