Pietro della Vecchia
(1605 - 1678)
Pietro della Vecchia was active/lived in Italy. Pietro Vecchia is known for painting.
Pietro della Vecchia, since the late 18th century falsely also known as
Pietro Muttoni or Pietro della Vecchia Muttoni, was the son of a
prominent Venetian family. His early works are deeply influenced by
Carlo Saraceni and his student, which has led to the assumption that the
painter may has initially been trained by them. After a possible short
stay in Rome around 1621-22, he was active in the studio of Alessandro
Varotari, called Padovanino, around 1625 and first familiarized with the
masters of the Venetian Cinquecento, such as Titian and Giorgione.
works by the artist can be still found in churches in Venice, as well
as in important international collections, such as the "Kunsthistorisches
Museum" in Vienna, the Louvre in Paris, the "Gemäldegalerie" in Dresden
and the National Gallery in Dublin.
