Giovanni Battista Tiepolo Week: "The Triumph of Virtue over Ignorance"

All this week I'm going to be posting the shaped canvases of one of my favorite painters, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo.

This panel's shape isn't too wild, but it's interesting to note how the figure on the bottom-left fits nicely into the shape. The edges of this piece are not flat, but slightly bowed outward and the corners are slightly bowed inward. I think those are nice details.
