Catalogue Note

The French-born painter and sculptor Pierre-Joseph Grison, known as Giuseppe Grisoni, studied in Florence under Tommaso Redi before moving to England in 1715. Although his grand group portrait of the Talman Family was a success (now in the National Portrait Gallery, London, inv. no. 5781), he returned to Italy in 1728 to teach at the Accademia di Belle Arti and eventually moved to Rome.
