Francesco Fontebasso

(1709-1769)

Biography


This painter represented the Venetian school in Russia. A student of Sebastiano Ricci, he was one of the busiest painters in the field of monumental decoration, who painted “in oils and fresco, with such ease as to arose admiration.” In Italy he worked with Tiepolo and with Giamberrino Cignaroli from Verona on the decoration of the Palazzo Barbarigo; with Diziani on the decoration of the Palazzo Bernardi, 1743-50, and the Palazzo Contarini at S. Benedetto, c. 1748, and on his own at the Palazzo Boldł, 1744-45, and the Palazzo Duolo, c. 1743. Read Francesco Fontebasso's Full Biography
