NOVITÀ SUL SOGGIORNO ROMANO DI GIOVANNI BATTISTA TEMPESTI

Stefano Renzoni

 

ABSTRACT

The article sheds new light on the permanence in Rome of the Pisan painter Giovanni Battista Tempesti (1729-1804), yet not studied in detail. The article is based on new documentary evidences about Tempesti’s life in Rome and on ten unpublished drawings to be referred to Tempesti, preserved in an important private collection. The aim of the article is to offer a new insight on the training of Tuscan painters in Rome, and their relationship with the local Accademia di San Luca and Accademie del Nudo at the middle of eighteenth century.
