"The Minuet" by Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo

Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo’s “The Minuet” (1756) depicts Venetian revelers dancing at Carnevale, Venice’s annual festival of decadence and indulgence in the weeks leading up to Lent. Famous for its extravagant costumes, signature masks, elaborate feasts and debauched atmosphere, Carnevale drew dozens of European travelers to Venice in the 18th-century. In “The Minuet” Tiepolo brilliantly captures the sumptuous costumes and lively spirit of Venice’s carnival-goers. This beautiful work is exhibited at the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya in Barcelona, Spain.
