Pantalone in the Arts: the search for the lost youth

by Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo - 1727-1804

Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo: "The minuet" (1756)

oil on canvas (1756)

Being a Venetian artist it was almost impossible for Tiepolo not to take advantage of these great characters that were the masks during Carnival, and its atmospheres.

And here we have a Pantalone being immersed in a happy dancing with young women, his trying to roll back the clock a little pathetic. Forever young because rich?
