Il padre di famiglia - The Father of the Family


This scene depicts the dining room of an aristocratic family from the 18th century. At the middle of the round tabls there is a chicken in a serving dish. On the walls in the background, there are nice plates and table vases. The engraver from Belluno, Antonio Baratti (1724-1787), was a good friend of Venetian painter, designer and engraver Pietro Antonio Novelli (1729–1804). Baratti transfered many of Novelli's works into engravings, including the works of Metatasio, Ariosto and Goldoni. This print is based on Carlo Goldoni's commedy “Il padre di famiglia”, performed for the first time in Venice during Carnival in 175o. The illustration comes from the volume of Delle Commedie published by Venice by Giambatista Pasquali in 1761.
