(b Rome, 9 July 1697; d Rome, 1773). Italian painter, draughtsman
and engraver. He was the son of Pietro Anesi, a silk weaver from
Venice. Paolo studied figure painting with Giuseppe Chiari and, in
1715, landscape painting with Bernardino Fergioni (1674–?1738), who
was also teaching Andrea Locatelli at that time. Sebastiano Conca
was another of Anesi’s teachers. In 1723 Anesi married the daughter
of the architect Giuseppe Sardi. His earliest known work is a
drawing (1719; Florence, Uffizi), but he made his reputation with
the only known example of his engraved work: Varie vedute inventate
ed intagliate, dedicated to Cardinal Giuseppe Renato Imperiali and
published in Rome in 1725.
