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 composition, the Virgin Mary is seated, holding the baby Jesus on her lap. She is portrayed as serene and tender, gazing lovingly at her child. Joseph, standing behind the pair, looks upon them with a sense of awe and reverence. The angel, positioned near Joseph, is seen playing a violin, adding a musical element to the scene. Bartolozzi's painting showcases his mastery over portraying delicate facial expressions and evoking a sense of divine beauty. The colors used are vibrant and harmonious, enhancing the overall peaceful atmosphere. The composition and arrangement of figures create a balanced and unified composition.
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.
