Rosalba Carriera
(Italian, 1675 - 1757)
by Rosalba Carriera
This person is associated with: Rococo

Venetian Rococo painter. She may have learned painting with Giuseppe Diamantini.

She started to paint miniatures but later switched to pastels, with which she had a tremendous success. Indeed, her works were highly sought after and became as important as Canaletto's vedute for tourists. Hundreds of her flattering portraits were also done during her trips in Austria, France or Poland; King Augustus III of Saxony-Poland was particularly fond of her works and collected 150 of them.

She ceased to paint after 1746 since she became blind.

She was admitted in the French Academy during her stay in Paris in 1720, but she never really seated.

She was the sister-in-law of Giovanni Antonio Pellegrini, another Venetian Rococo painter.
