Giambattista Piazzetta, together with Giambattista Tiepolo, dominates history painting in 18th-century Venice. Regarded as the greatest religious painter of his time, he was also widely known for his delightful small secular paintings, and his exquisite decorations and illustrations for printed books, when Venice was an important and influential centre of book production. His drawings, especially the characteristic studies of heads of ordinary men and women, were popular with collectors, and widely engraved, became a familiar element on the walls of many a Venetian house. This is the first study in English of this key figure in the last great flowering of Venetian painting.
