Painter, fresco artist, sculptor, draughtsman. Religious subjects, allegorical subjects, portraits, genre scenes, landscapes with figures.

Son of Giuseppe Creti the Elder, he was a pupil of Pasinelli in Bologna. His style shows the influence of Pasinelli, and also that of Cantarini. He was a founder member of the Accademia Clementina in Bologna, in 1709, and worked for over 20 years at the palace of the Counts of Fava, on the Via Galliera. His reputation spread throughout Italy and beyond from 1730, and in 1737 he left to work at the Spanish court. Donato Creti is considered one of the finest Bolognese draughtsmen of the 18th century. He worked for churches in Bologna (S Domenico, S Pietro and S Paolo Maggiore), as well as in Rimini, Lucca and Palermo. His pendant portraits of Martha and Mary Magdalene are painted in a refined classical style, with graceful line and delicate floral colours. The majority of his pictures, however, were painted for palaces in Bologna, and are now lost. His paintings at the city's Palazzo Pubblico included four scenes from the life of Achilles. A contemporary of Giuseppe Maria Crespi, he adopted a quite different genre from the latter, painting idyllic, bucolic scenes, elegantly drawn and with vivid, jewel-like colours. His subjects - courtship and pastoral scenes - are reminiscent of, but inferior to, Watteau. His drawings of landscapes and genre scenes feature light effects rendered with great virtuosity....
