DESCRIPTION:
Magnificent copper engraving by Francesco Bartolozzi, ater Giovanni Francesco Barbieri (Guercino). Publishing in 1746 years, Italy. The sample is taken from the work "Original Paintings and Drawings of Guercino in the Collection of His Majesty."
This painting shows a moment when two young women stand next to each other. One of them stands with her back to the observer, so her face is not visible, and the other is turned to face in profile. The women are dressed in elegant outfits that reflect the fashion of the time. The artist paid special attention to detail and subtlety of execution to convey the beauty of female portraiture. He used soft brushes and fine strokes to create portraits with texture and depth. This painting allows us to look at the grace and beauty of the two young women, as well as the subtle nuances in their expression and posture. She invites the observer to delve into the world of elegance and mystery of these two feminine figures.
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.
