DESCRIPTION:
Magnificent copper engraving by Francesco Bartolozzi, ater Giovanni Francesco Barbieri (Guercino). Publishing in 1764 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 Turkish woman reading. In the center of the picture we see a female figure, a Turkish woman, who is intently absorbed in reading. She is sitting on a chair and holding an open book. Her face shows interest and attention to the content she is studying. The woman is dressed in traditional Turkish clothing, which creates a feeling of authenticity and national color. The background of the picture is made in neutral colors, which helps to focus on the main character. Compositionally, the painting is simple and balanced, with a focus on the painterly interpretation of the woman and the objects around her. This work is an example of how the artist Bartolozzi skillfully conveys the interest and inner life of his subjects, creating a sense of presence and animation. The painting "A Turkish Woman Reading" is an excellent example of the synthesis of Italian and Eastern Turkish cultural elements. 
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.
