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."
The artwork depicts a distinguished gentleman from Florence, Italy, captured in a realistic and detailed manner, dressed in elegant attire, reflecting the fashion of the time. The artist pays great attention to detail, showcasing the fine fabric textures and intricate patterns of the gentleman's clothing. Bartolozzi blends warm and subtle colors to create a harmonious composition that enhances the overall elegance of the subject. The background of the painting is often simple, allowing the figure of the Florentine gentleman to shine. Bartolozzi's focus is on capturing the essence of the individual, displaying their confidence and sophistication through a masterful play of light and shadow.
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.
