Giovanni Battista Cipriani,  (1727, Florence, Italy—Dec. 14, 1785, England), painter who was the first exponent in England of Neoclassicism and who played an important part in directing 18th-century English artistic taste.
Cipriani was a pupil of the Anglo-Florentine painter Ignazio Hugford. In 1750 he went to Rome, where he encountered nascent Neoclassicism and met members of the English colony there.
