Francesco Zuccarelli does not have an image.
18th century Florentine
(Pittigliano (Grosseto), Italy, 1702 - 1778, Florence)
Zuccarelli was one of the principal landscape painters of the 18th century. Formed in Florence and Rome, his style is basically an extension of the classical tradition. Arriving in Venice around 1731, he responded to Marco Ricci’s more subjective interpretation of that tradition, lightened his palette, and cultivated his own gentle, Arcadian manner. Simple in organization, general in description, and warm in atmosphere, with their incidental figures practically interchangeable, Zuccarelli’s landscapes are very attractive and highly formulaic. They enjoyed tremendous popularity especially in England, where he traveled on numerous occasions and influenced the development of the native tradition.
