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

Giovanni Raggi, born in Bergamo in 1712, initially a pupil of his father Agostino, entered Giovanni Battista Tiepolo's service in 1732/33, and remained in Tiepolo's studio until 1741.  Tiepolo mentions Raggi as his pupil in a letter dated April 10th, 1734, now preserved in the Academy Carrara in Bergamo.

Giovanni Raggi worked mainly on the frescoes with Tiepolo in the Cappella Colleoni and the chiesa di Santa Maria Maggiore in Bergamo and later followed his master to Venice.  Especially in Raggi's early works, his style reflects his association with Giovanni Battista Tiepolo.  His drawings were mistaken for his master's work even during his own lifetime.

Giovanni Raggi died in his native city in 1792 or 1794.
