Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Francesco Guardi was born in Venice, Italy in 1712.  His father was Dominico Guardi, also a painter, who had come to Venice after his marriage in Vienna.  The Guardi was a good example of a bottega (half studio, half shop) in the Venetian tradition.  Domenico was founder of the workshop. The elder son, Giannantonio, probably trained Francesco; the brothers worked together on many paintings and church decorations. After 1750, Francesco painted alone.
