Abstract

While the subject of artistic training within the Academies in the Early Modern Italy and Europe has been extensively dealt with, studies on the training of the painter within the workshop remain rare. This paper analyses the Venetian case, using exceptional archival documentation: the series "Accordi dei garzoni" (agreements of apprentices) of the Giustizia Vecchia (Archivio di Stato di Venezia). The analysis of the data was carried out in the framework of the ANR-FNS project "Garzoni: Apprenticeship, Work and Society in Early Modern Venice, 16th-18th centuries". It shows how, in spite of other professions in the guild, the training of painter required a considerable investment both in terms of time and in economic terms - the painters' apprentices are among the few who hardly ever receive any remuneration during their 'garzonato'.
