Antonio Zucchi ( Venice 1726 - Rome 1795 )
Antonio Zucchi, Giuseppe Carlo’s brother, was an Italian painter. He studied first with Francesco Fontebasso then with Jacopo Amigoni, who greatly influenced him. As his contemporaries noted, in his early works, for example Male Saints Surrounded by Female Franciscan Saints (untraced) he imitated Amigoni’s manner and hazy style of colouring. His Fourteen Stations of the Cross (1750; Venice, S Giobbe) also shows Amigoni’s influence as well as an awareness of Francesco Guardi’s innovations.
