Giovanni Domenico Ferretti (Giandomenico), also called Giandomenico d’Imola (1692–1768) was an Italian Rococo style painter from Florence.

Featured Artist at the e.Gallery: Giovanni_Batista Piazetta


Portrait

Featured Artist at the e.Gallery this week is a 18th Century artist of the Rococo movement, Giovanni_Batista Piazetta [Italian, 1682-1754] Link: http://fineart.elib.com/fineart.php?dir=Alphabetical/Piazetta_Giovanni_Batista

Giovanni Batista Piazzetta was an artist who sought little gain in his creations, and as a result he was impoverished for much of his life. Albeit, his paintings and drawings were renowned for their Rocco style, with subtle coloring and curvaceous forms in religious and genre subjects. Born in Venice to a sculptor, Piazzetta studied woodcarving with his father and went on to train as a painter with Antonio Molinari (1655–1704). Molinari was a Venetian Baroque painter, whose influence merged in Piazzetta with that of the Bolognese painter, Giuseppe Crespi (1665–1747), who certainly influenced Piazzetta and may have trained him some.

Featured Artist at the e.Gallery: Francesco Guardi


Portrait

Featured Artist at the e.Gallery this week is a 18th Century artist of the Rococo movement, Francesco Guardi [Venetian, 1712-1793] Link: http://fineart.elib.com/fineart.php?dir=Alphabetical/Guardi_Francesco

Francesco Guardi (1712–93), was a Venetian painter, the best-known member of a family of artists. He is now famous for his views of Venice, indeed next to Canaletto he is the most celebrated view-painter of the 18th century, but he produced work on a great variety of subjects and seems to have concentrated on views only after the death of his brother Gianantonio (1699–1760).

Featured Artist at the e.Gallery: Gilbert Stuart


Portrait

Featured Artist at the e.Gallery this week is a 18th Century artist, Gilbert Stuart [American, 1755-1828] Link: http://fineart.elib.com/fineart.php?dir=Alphabetical/Stuart_Gilbert

Gilbert Stuart was born on December 3, 1755, in Saunderstown, Rhode Island. He was born in the water-powered snuff mill that his father operated. Stuart showed such early promise as an artist that he traveled, with artist Cosmo Alexander, to learn his craft in England and Scotland in 1769. Unfortunately, Alexander died during their tour, and it was up to a 15 year-old Gilbert to work his way back to the U.S. Undaunted, he executed small commissions in his native Newport until he could travel back to England in 1775. This journey proved more successful than the first, and Stuart entered the studio of painter Benjamin West.
