Francesco Zuccarelli (1702 - 1788)
Though born and trained in Italy, Rococo painter Francesco Zuccarelli would serve as a founding member of England's Royal Academy, and enjoyed the attention, critical praise and patronage of many wealthy English clients.
He had trained with Paolo Anesi and then moved to Rome where he worked as an apprentice to several masters, including Giorgio Morandi and Andrea Locatelli. He opened his own studio in Venice in 1732, and was immediately successful with his landscapes and large veduta scenes.
He had visited England during his education, and was working for several patrons in that country when he decided to relocate in 1752. He stayed for over twenty years, during which time he became famous for his picturesque landscapes, usually depicting peasants in classical dress, or expansive landscapes frequently containing ruins or bodies of water.
