This Venetian Rococo painting, Scipio paying homage to Mars by Giambattista Pittoni, epitomizes Rococo art. It is a celebration of the joy of painting and the unbridled emotion that flowed onto canvases of the period. Most likely a commission for a grand home on the Venetian Canal, this picture was a crowning achievement for Pittoni.
