Condition Report

Wonderful work of the painting studios of Marco Pitteri and Francesco Bartolozzi, the great tribute to the work of Giovanni Battista Piazzetta. Of this work several editions were published, one of these was published by Teodoro Viero. The plates, contrarily to those published in the first edition, which are only progressively numbered, bear the signature of Bartolozzi and Pitteri and a different numbering.
