Marco Alvise Pitteri

1702–1786, Venice

Marco Alvise Pitteri worked throughout his life in his native city of Venice, where from about the 1720s onwards he became one of the main producers of prints inspired by the works of his master and intimate friend, Giovanni Battista Piazzetta. He gained special recognition for a series of fifteen large-sized portraits of the Apostles, God the Father and Christ and Mary, applying for a privilege to publish them in 1742. In addition to reproductive engravings after Piazzetta, Pitteri produced other high-quality, technically sophisticated reproductive prints after Pietro Longhi, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, Jusepe de Ribera and others.
