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."
In the center of the picture is the image of a talented artist, performer and art teacher. He is depicted in full growth, dressed in luxurious clothes and holding a palette with brushes in his hand. This is a vivid portrait of the master, which personifies his influence and greatness in the world of art. The background of the painting depicts a workshop, reminding us of the environment in which the paintings are created. Various tools and materials, such as brushes and paints, are scattered around the workshop, giving an atmosphere of work and creativity. Bartolozzi masterfully used the technique of chiaroscuro to create a sense of realism and depth in the image. He finely worked out the details of hair, clothing and facial expression, giving them realism and liveliness.
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.
