Pietro LONGHI , 1700/2 - 1785

A Fortune Teller at Venice


Date: about 1756
Medium: Oil on canvas
Dimensions: 59.1 x 48.6 cm
Acquisition credit: Bought, 1891

The scene is under the lower outside arcade of the Doges' Palace, Venice, where showmen and quacks erected booths, chiefly at the carnival. The inscription on the pillar probably relates to the election or coronation in 1752 of Doge Francesco Loredan (1685 - 1762). The other inscription relates to the vacancy for the parish priest at S. Trovaso in 1752.
