Visit to a Lawyer Magnet

2 x 3 inches

This special magnet depicts an entertaining scene in a lawyers office by Domenico Tiepolo (1727-1804). A fun addition to your decor, this magnet is sure to be a conversation starter! The man and woman seated with their backs to the viewer have apparently come before the disheveled lawyer opposite them to settle a dispute, perhaps one involving a bad marriage contract signed by the foppish young man on the right. The precise meaning of all the documents has yet to be deciphered, though the paper at the lawyer’s hand reads, “Here you spend, and here you pay, in contracts.'' The painting decorating the office is recognizable as Giambattista’s Madonna of the Goldfinch.

This magnet is a product made to complement the exhibition Spirit and Invention: Drawings by Giambattista and Domenico Tiepolo on view at the Morgan Library & Museum October 27, 2023 through January 28, 2024.
