Fratta studied with Donato Creti, but had no success as a painter. He turned to printmaking, which provided him with a prosperous career, especially as a reproductive engraver of the Bolognese masters. He also worked successfully as an original printmaker and draftsman. He often treated mythological and biblical themes in his prints and drawings, sometimes adding watercolor to the latter.
