Pietro Longhi

Pietro Longhi (1702-1785) is known as the painter of the middle-class. Longhi captured typical scenes of the middle class and nobility, using a smooth and elegant style. In Longhi's paintings (for example Ritratto di Famiglia) an image of a decadent society clearly emerges. 

Works by Longhi in Venice: Ritratto di Famiglia, 1760-65, hosted in Palazzo Leoni Montanari.
