Carlo Spiridione Mariotti, 
Italian 1726-1790- 

A Barber's Shop;

Mariotti studied under Giacinto Boccanera (1666-1746) and Antonio Maria Garbi (1718-1797) in Perugia. He was best-known for his genre scenes and produced a number of sketches similar to the present work, a charming and somewhat humorous scene depicting a figure being shaved by his barber.
