Frescoes in the Palazzo Labia in Venice (1746-47) by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo. Residence of Don Carlos De Beistegui

Palazzo Labia, the Tiepolo fresco Palazzo Labia is a baroque palace in Venice, Italy. Built in the 17th–18th century, it is one of the last great palazzi of Venice. Little known outside of Italy, it is most notable for the remarkable frescoed ballroom painted 1746–47 by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, with decorative works in trompe l’oeil by Gerolamo Mengozzi-Colonna. The Labia family, who commissioned the palazzo, were originally Spanish and bought their way into nobility in 1646, hence considered arriviste by the old Venetian aristocracy. The double height palazzo ballroom (or Salone delle Feste) is entirely frescoed with scenes from the Romantic encounters of Marcus Antonius and Cleopatra. These frescoes were a collaboration between Tiepolo and Girolamo Mengozzi Colonna. The frescos are framed by architectural elements in trompe l’oeil, featuring doorways, windows and balconies.Through the illusionary elements we view the encounter of Anthony and the Egyptian Queen at a banquet, while from the painted balconies and upper windows members of Cleopatra’s court seem to look down. It is though the models for these figures were members of the Labia’s household. In the scene Cleopatra dissolves her priceless pearl in a goblet of wine, demonstrating to Anthony her wealth; maybe as a metaphor to the Labia family noveau riche position in Venetian society. The wealth and power of the Labia family declined with the fall of the Serene Republic in 1797. During the 19th century the Palazzo fell into decay. This coincided with a period where Tiepolo’s work was unpopular and unappreciated. In 1948 the palazzo acquired a new owner, Don Carlos de Beistegui (Charlie de Beistegui), French-born heir to a Franco-Mexican fortune, who began an intensive restoration. Beistegui was a skilled natural interior decorator, and for the derelict palazzo, he purchased furnishings acquired from the palazzo’s less fortunate neighbours, including frescoes by Raphael, Annibale Carracci, and Guido Reni. These works of art, coupled with newly acquired tapestries and antiques, restored to the palazzo its former splendour. So avid a collector was Don Carlos that his taste became known as le goût Beistegui (the Beistegui style)

Ramses II (c. 1303 BC – July or August 1213 BC) was the third pharaoh (reigned 1279 BC – 1213 BC) of the 19th dynasty. He is regarded as the greatest, most celebrated, and most powerful pharaoh of the Egyptian Empire. His successors called him the "Great Ancestor." Ramesses II led several military expeditions into the Levant, re-asserting Egyptian control over Canaan. He also led expeditions to the south, into Nubia, commemorated in inscriptions at Beit el-Wali and Gerf Hussein.

I’ve received a number of requests to do a feature on maternity fashion, so that’s our next subject. Prior to the mid-20th century it was not unusual for women to spend a major portion of their adult life pregnant. Despite this fact pregnancy often remained a delicate subject, leaving most women to figure out how to dress their changing figures on their own. Medieval fashions were not tightly fitted to the body and were easily altered for pregnancy. Flemish artist Rogier van der Weyd
