Giovanni Antonio Pellegrini

1675 - 1741

Pellegrini was born and died in Venice. His work was influenced by Sebastiano Ricci. In 1708 he visited England with Marco Ricci (Sebastiano's nephew and pupil), and worked there until 1713. He was largely a painter of decorative scenes, and was employed extensively in Northern Europe - in Germany, the Low Countries and France. He married the sister of the portraitist Rosalba Carriera.
