The New World, Giandomenico Tiepolo in Zianígo, Ca’Rezzonico, Venice

The New World in this painting is hidden in the booth – a magic lantern presenting the pictures of exotic spaces – bringing together the crowd of people from every social layer looking or waiting to look at it. A unique painting of the time in which the scene, the real interest of the crowd, is hidden from the viewer challenging classical representation.IMG_9597IMG_9598IMG_9599IMG_9600IMG_9601
