The following correspondence originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my artwork, “Recreating Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo’s Cira-1759 ‘Gateposts and Outbuildings of a Villa’“…
Rayn: Created in Spring 2000 for art class at Stony Brook University.
The assignment was to recreate an illustration of Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo‘s cira-1759 “Gateposts and Outbuildings of a Villa” using black ink, a dip pen, water and a paint brush on white 8×10 paper.
