Diziani's earliest training was in Belluno with Antonio Lazzarini. Having moved to Venice, he joined the workshop of Gregorio Lazzarini and later that of Sebastiano Ricci, who exerted the strongest influence on his development. Diziani worked as a painter in Belluno and Venice and was also working as a scenery painter in many Venetian theatres, an employment that led to commissions first in Munich and later in Dresden. Diziani was a great draughtsman, and he is particularly known for the large collection of his drawings kept in the Correr Museum. He began his development as a draughtsman in the manner of Ricci, with a style of unbroken lines and watercolour brushstrokes, then he set off towards an increasingly vigorous fragmentation of line. His mature drawings show how fully he adhered to the broad vision of the Venetian Rococo and are especially reminiscent of Pellegrini, Gian Antonio Guardi and sometimes the more luminous works of Tiepolo.
My warmest thanks to dr. Maichol Clemente, who kindly indicated me the proper subject of this drawing.
