Abstract

This essay examines the representation of the sacrifice of Iphigenia in the fresco by Gian Battista Tiepolo, located in Villa Valmarana near Vicenza. It explores the origins of the myth, beginning with the tragedy of Aeschylus, and continues to explore interpretations in the Latin literature until the Baroque period. The essay focuses especially on the patriarchal figure of Agamemnon, and the meaning of his hidden face.
