The Talman family by Grisoni

Giuseppe Pierre Joseph Grisoni (bapt. 24 October 16991769), also known as Grifoni or Grison, was an Italian painter and sculptor, noted for his landscapes and historical tableaux.



Born in Mons, he studied in Florence under Tommaso Redi, abandoning his Flemish influences for the Italian tradition. In 1715 he travelled to London with John Talman and tried to establish himself as a portrait painter. He did not achieve enough success to stay, however, and returned to Florence in 1728 to teach at the Academy of Fine Arts. In 1740, he briefly relocated to Pisa before settling in Rome where he died.

One of his pupils was William Hoare (1707–1792). [1]

Pompeo Batoni Italian painter

Pompeo Girolamo Batoni was an Italian painter who displayed a solid technical knowledge in his portrait work and in his numerous allegorical and mythological pictures. The high number of foreign visitors travelling throughout Italy and reaching Rome during their "Grand Tour" led the artist to specialize in portraits. Batoni won international fame largely thanks to his customers, mostly British of noble origin, whom he portrayed, often with famous Italian landscapes in the background. Such Grand Tour portraits by Batoni were in British private collections, thus ensuring the genre's popularity in Great Britain. One generation later, Sir Joshua Reynolds would take up this tradition and become the leading English portrait painter. Although Batoni was considered the best Italian painter of his time, contemporary chronicles mention his rivalry with Anton Raphael Mengs.
