Pietro Fabris (Italian (Neapolitan), active 1768 - 1778)
Pietro Fabris, who described himself as British, spent most of his life in Naples where he painted landscapes and genre pictures, which proved particularly popular with European gentlemen on the Grand Tour. He was a favourite artist of the British Consul in Naples, Sir William Hamilton, accompanying him on his trips to study volancoes and producing fifty-eight gouache paintings which were subsequently engraved as illustrations to Hamilton's book about the volcanic area around Vesuvius, Etna, Stromboli and the Lipari islands.
