Portrait of Sir Thomas Reeve by Jacopo Amigoni (1682-1752)

Jacopo Amigoni (pronounced Amiconi) was a Venetian painter known for his Rococo style of painting. Although the exact details of his early life are unknown, Amigoni was probably born and trained in Venice. His international career began in 1715, working in a number of European countries, although he finally settled in Spain as a court painter.

 

Amigoni made his living as a portrait painter whilst also working on large-scale decorative paintings.
