Antonio Zucchi (1726–1795) was an Italian painter, born in Venice, who married the painter Angelica Kauffmann in 1781. He is understood to have undertaken a number of study trips, in the company of Robert Adam to, among other places, Rome and Naples. He settled in Rome, and in 1766 he was invited by Adam to come to London, where he exhibited his work in 1771 and in 1773. Zucchi completed five frescoes for ‘Home House’ in London, designed by Adam, and worked on the decoration of other large houses. The two oval paintings of ‘Pan Celebrating the Feast of Bacchus’ (after Angelica Kauffmann) were marouflaged to the ceiling of one of the Adam rooms at the Society’s House.
