Pompeo Girolamo Batoni

1708-1787 Italy-Rococo

 

Brief Biography-Pompeo Girolamo Batoni was a native of Lucca who settled in Rome when he was aged nineteen. He was a disciple of Sebastiano Conca. He quickly became successful in Rome doing portraits for foreign nobility on their Grand Tours. Inspired by High Renaissance art he studied Raphael and was also influenced by the Rococo style of painting which ultimately led his unique style to a form of Neoclassicism. His works included many portrait commissions for Popes and Royalty of several European countries.
