Giovan Battista Tiepolo biography

This work is linked to Susanna 1:20

Tiepolo follows in the footsteps of, among others, Tintoretto, Rembrandt, Rubens and Van Dijck when he takes on this well-known theme. Two elders are bothering the beauteous Susanna. She shows her irritation, upon which the two accuse her of adultery and cause problems for her. In the end, Susanna receives help from Daniel.
