About this image

Image data

  • Two magicians and two children. Tiepolo, Giovanni Battista (Italian, 1696-1770). Etching, circa 1743-circa 1757. Notes: State I/II. Plate fourteen of the series Scherzi di Fantasia ('fantasy jests'). The themes of the Scherzi, with their exotic mixture of satyrs, sorcerers and turbaned figures, may well have been stimulated by Tiepolo's commission to decorate a room with scenes from Tasso's Jerusalem delivered, which he painted around 1742.
