Vibrant, Alive & Full of Color
Giovanni Battista Tiepolo (1696—1770), Venetian painter and printmaker, may have lived and worked in the REALLY old days, but his work is anything but moldy or dusty. Vibrant, alive and full of color, Tiepolo's paintings have been an inspiration for many a modern artist/illustrator. Roy Krenkel credited him (as well as many others, of course) as an influence in his work.
