Very little is known about Pietro de Angelis, he is recorded as having worked on mythological ceiling frescoes in the 18th century. The artist must have worked in the circle of the Venetian painter Pietro Antonio Novelli (1729-1804), since his style is similar to Novelli's decorative works (see lots 154 and 155).
