Francesco Zucchi (Venice 1692-1764), engraver, was born at Venice in 1692. He was the brother of Andrea Zucchi (1679–1740), and was instructed by him in Pordenone. He was invited to Dresden to engrave some plates from the pictures in the Gallery but his work was interrupted by the Seven Years' War. According to Henry Fuseli, Zucchi never actually went to Dresden but he was sending his works from Venice instead. His artistic production includes reproductions of paintings, city views of Venice, Brescia, Brixen and many illustrations for books including the 1742 Italian translation of the Paradise Lost by Milton. He died in 1764.
