Venetian Settecento in Setdart by Giovanni Battista Piazzetta.

Giovanni Battista Piazzetta was one of the most influential artists of Venetian settecento. The rococo theatricality of his style developed especially in religious themes, devoting instead to genre painting and portraiture a more intimate and personal treatment.

The latter is evident in two canvases that can be purchased at Setdart Auctions, in which the portrait genre reaches a high quality. In both cases, the painter prioritizes the expression of the person being portrayed, whose face occupies the major part of the painting and whose features appear naturally carved through a daring light modulation.
