GUARDI, Giacomo
(b. 1764, Venezia, d. 1835, Venezia)

Biography

Italian painter, the son of Francesco Guardi, the veduta painter. He began his career in the atelier of his father. His work is very similar to that of his father, often making a certain attribution to either of them very difficult. Some works were produced in collaboration. Giacomo worked a lot for French, Italian and English patrons and is best known for his landscapes.

After his father's death, Giacomo Guardi continued the family studio producing paintings both in his father's and his own style.
