At the peak of his career, Batoni was one of the most accomplished and celebrated painters not just in Rome but across Europe. Steeped in the study of antique statuary and the classical tradition in painting, from Raphael through Reni, Batoni developed an especially ordered, polished, rhetorically precise version of academic late Baroque draftsmanship. Study of models from life became standard artistic practice and took its conventional forms in the 18th century. Batoni’s are exceptionally sound in structure but sensitive to surface properties. Even more than for most artists, they represent the foundation of his style.
