Christopher Baker traces the extraordinary career of Rosalba Carriera (1673-1757), one of eighteenth-century Venice’s most fascinating and accomplished artists, who established an international reputation for portraits executed in pastel, and was feted across Europe.

Christopher Baker is Director of European and Scottish Art and Portraiture at the National Galleries of Scotland, has published widely and is the 2022 Paul Mellon Rome Fellow. He is curator of an exhibition on Henri Fuseli, opening this autumn at the Musée Jacquemart-André in Paris and is organising a major touring exhibition on Canaletto and his contemporaries for Japan in 2024.
