The Dancing Lesson (c. 1741). Pietro Longhi (Venetian, Rococo, 1712-1793). Oil on canvas. Gallerie dell’Accademia, Venice.  Longhi was extremely popular, painting bright scenes with a light social comedy. Many show Venetians at play, and chronicle the daily activities of a typical Venetian citizen, such as going to the barber’s, duck hunting, or, in this case, having a dance lesson.
