The author of this painting was one of more interesting exhibitors of the painting of kind of the XVIIth century.
He began his artistic career while painting frescos, but he  concentrated later on scenes of the everyday life of the people and Venetian aristocracy.
He makes portraits of generations of Venetians: the children, the adults and the old people in rich person costumes, wigs, and sometimes with masks, in sumptuous furnished interiors.

Who is this painter, amusing, sometimes ironic or quite simply whimsicaly attentive chronicler of Venice?

A Giovanni Bellini
B Pietro Longhi
C Giorgio da Caltelfranco (known as "Giorgione")
D Lorenzo Lotto

9. His works open the doors of the middle-class residences and describe their public and private activities  which are prosperous and highly respected from now on in Venice.
An original work built on rich domestic chronicles of picturesque details, strangeness, precision and full of charm.
His work, fashionable and spiritual, is very close to the comedies of:

A Volpone
B the "Commedia dell' Arte"
C Carlo Goldoni
D Luigi Pirandello

10. Which of these paintings did he not paint?

A' fortune teller'
B' the puller of teeth'
C' the tailor'
D' the rinhoceros'
