DESCRIPTION:
Magnificent copper engraving by Francesco Bartolozzi, ater Giovanni Francesco Barbieri (Guercino). Publishing in 1646 years, Italy. The sample is taken from the work "Original Paintings and Drawings of Guercino in the Collection of His Majesty."
The painting depicts a serene and ethereal scene where a guardian angel is watching over a young child. The angel appears to be gently hovering above, with a radiant glow emanating from their figure. The child, depicted with innocence and vulnerability, is nestled in a peaceful slumber, completely unaware of the celestial presence guarding them. Bartolozzi's attention to detail is evident in this painting, as he skillfully renders the softness of the angel's wings and the delicacy of their facial features. The artist's use of light and shadow creates a tranquil atmosphere, enhancing the heavenly quality of the composition. The colors chosen for the artwork, typically pastel hues, add to its serene and tranquil nature.
Francesco Bartolozzi is an Italian draftsman, watercolor painter and engraver, the greatest master of etching, dotted style, in particular colored dotted line and pencil etching style. From 1764 he worked in
 England, where he created a school of color reproduction engravings.
Giovanni Francesco Barbieri (1591 – 1666) better known as Guercino, was an Italian Baroque painter and draftsman from Cento in the Emilia region, who was active in Rome and Bologna. The vigorous naturalism of his early manner contrasts with the classical equilibrium of his later works. His many drawings are noted for their luminosity and lively style.
