This paper aims to provide a summary of the fortuna critica of the Dalmatian painter Federico Bencovich
(1677-1753), beginning with some biographical notes published in the 18th century finishing with some 21st
century studies. The author wants to demonstrate how the successful cliché which consists in the common
opinion that Bencovich is responsible for Tiepolo’s art’s formation, was largely created by Moschini’s opinion
on Bencovich. Consequently, in the 20th century a lot of paintings, characterized by a genius and a sprightliness
rococo’, were ascribed to the Dalmatian painter; but recently most of them have been assigned to other
painters (young Tiepolo, Crosato, Mildorfer). The catalogue of Bencovich is becoming increasingly poorer than
it already was, and maybe we should correct his role in the venetian survey of the 18th century.
