DESCRIPTION:
Magnificent copper engraving by Francesco Bartolozzi, ater Giovanni Francesco Barbieri (Guercino). Publishing in 1764 years, England. The sample is taken from the work "Original Paintings and Drawings of Guercino in the Collection of His Majesty."
This painting shows a simple and elegant scene depicting a peaceful interaction between a small child and a sheep. Children and sheep in the visual arts are often associated with innocence, nature and childhood. This painting captures this theme and creates an emotional and harmonious mood. Bartolozzi was known for his beautiful and soft style and his work was often characterized by graceful lines and fine detail. "Child and Sheep" exemplifies his mastery of creating picturesque and sweet scenes that delight viewers with their tenderness and sensuality. This painting probably not only brings joy with its grace, but also evokes the simplicity and innocence of childhood and the natural bond between man and animal.
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.
