Giovanni Battista Tiepolo (March 5, 1696 - March 27, 1770) was a Venetian painter. His work was strongly influenced by the Venetian artist Paolo Veronese. In 1721 Tiepolo married Maria Cecilia Guardi, sister of the Venetian painters Francesco Guardi and Giovanni Antonio Guardi, by whom he had ten children. At least two of those children, Giandomenico and Lorenzo, worked with him as his assistants.
