Johann Baptist Lampi the Elder (1751 Romeno, South Tyrol - 1830 Vienna) began his studies in the studio of his father, Matthias Lamp (1697-1780). In the age of 17 he came to his great-uncle P.A. Lorenzoni living in Salzburg and continued studying under F.X. Koenig and E.N. Streicher. After a short stay in Brixen, South Tyrol where he probably took lessons with Franz Sebald Unterberger, he moved to the Academy in Verona in 1771. His next teacher there became F. Lorenzi, under his direction Lampi the Elder obtained his academic diploma. In 1772 he married in Verona and soon moved to Triest where he was chiefly active as a portrait painter. In 1773 the Academy of Verona elected him to its member. Invited by Count Heister, Governor of Tyrol at that time, Lampi came to Innsbruck in 1779 and stayed in that city until 1781, portraying various important persons a.o. Archduchesses Elizabeth and Marianne. From 1781 to 1782 he was active in Klagenfurt, where he changed his name Lamp to Italian "Lampi". From 1783 he lived in Vienna, where he found access to the higher circles of society though noble protecteurs. He painted several portraits of emperor Josef II, having joined the Academy of Arts in 1785, where he became Professor for historical painting. In 1788 Lampi came to Warsaw where he portrayed the King and various high aristocrats. In 1790-1791 he was back in Vienna. On October 21st 1791, Lampi arrived (by invitation of Prince Grigori Potyomkin - Russian chief-commander in Bessarabia) to Potyomkin's Headquarter in Jassy (at that time - Russian province Bessarabia, today - Romania) but soon left for St. Petersburg, having missed Potyomkin by only five days (the latter died on October 16th). In St. Petersburg, where he arrived in the early 1792, Lampi the Elder immediately became a court artist. He stayed in the Russian capital six-years-long (in 1795 he was joined there by his eldest son Johann Baptist Lampi the Younger; 1775-1837). In 1798, after his return to Vienna (1797), he was ennobled by Emperor Franz I to Baron. In 1799 Lampi received the title of an Honorary Citizen of Vienna.
