A poster print is particularly designed for placing your fine art print in a custom frame.

Giambattista Tiepolo illustrated in the table an episode in the life of Cleopatra, recounted by Pliny the Elder in his "Naturalis Historia" (Book IX) and by Plutarch in his "Lives of great men." This is the episode of the banquet given by Cleopatra Mark Antony in 41 BC. AD, during which the queen, who told the triumvirate that his feast would be the most expensive in history, melted in a cup of vinegar a priceless pearl. Tiepolo has chosen to surprise the instant the queen shows heavy pearl pearly its guests fascinated, Mark Antony, in costume and ceremonial feathered helmet, and Lucius Plancus, the Roman consul, here transformed by the painter Asiatic potentate .

This painting is a very bright and refined modello of "Banquet of Cleopatra" by Tiepolo preserved in the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne (1743-1744). His technique is particularly good for a successful implementation. More than a sketch is a preparatory version that can therefore date from 1742-1743 and is the valuable source of all Tiepolo achievements on this subject that was of particular interest.
