Batoni fate has developed successfully. Already in the early 1740s. He had no shortage of orders for the altarpiece, mythological, historical and allegorical paintings, and in 1741 he was admitted to the Academy of St. Luke. Batoni came to Rome in great fashion, especially after his colleague and rival Anton Raphael Mengs, a representative of early neoclassicism, moved in 1761 to Madrid.

Most often, the artist wrote to distinguished persons. Despite the brightness of the psychological characteristics of the model, it is always inherent something in common: the aristocratic dignity, emotional, but at the same time special, "philosophical" state.

Glory drew a portrait in his studio highest aristocratic nobility from all over Europe, he ordered portraits of the Pope and the monarchs. He was the keeper of the papal collections, and his house became a meeting place for artists of the day, social and intellectual center.

Art Batoni was not aware of conflicts with the public taste and found a constant recognition of his contemporaries.
