Giovanni Battista Lampi the Elder was born in Austria to fresco painter Matteo (Mattia) Lampi.  The young artist studied art under his father in Verona, & later in Salzburg. In 1773, he left his father's teaching to travel to Trento to study portraiture. He traveled next to Innsbruck; and then to Vienna, where the Emperor Joseph II appointed him a professor at the Vienna Academy in 1786. Later that same year, he was invited to Warsaw by the court of King Stanisław August Poniatowski.  He decided to stay & worked in Warsaw until the final partition of Poland.  In 1791, he moved to St. Petersburg, enticed by a hereditary knighthood offered by the Czar. In Russia he devoted himself to portrait painting.
