Giambattista Tiepolo was the greatest painter of the eighteenth century and the last representative of the glorious Venetian School. His art is linked to the sixteenth-century tradition of Venetian colorists, privileging the themes of light and perspective. The obverse of the 2 euro coin, issued on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of his death, depicts the moment when the angel sent by God saves Hagar and Ishmael who were lost in the desert, pointing to them a source of water. The detail is taken from the painting "Agar and Ismael", one of the absolute masterpieces of Tiepolo which is kept in the Scuola Grande di San Rocco, an important Venetian confraternity.
