Biography Nicola Grassi
Active in Venice, Nicola Grassi began his artistic training in the
studio of the celebrated portraitist, Nicolò Cassana. It was likely
through the elder artist that Grassi came into contact with the most
important painters of the preceding generation in the Veneto, including
Rosalba Carriera to Sebastiano Ricci and Giovanni Antonio Pellegrini,
and their influence is felt in his works, such as the present lot, which
masterfully combines a dramatic tenebrism with the vibrant colorito so characteristic of 18th-century Venetian painting.
