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 artwork depicts a scenic landscape with ruins and a man sketching them. The painting showcases a harmonious blend of nature and human intervention, capturing the picturesque beauty of the surroundings. The landscape portrayed in the artwork features rolling hills, trees, and vegetation, creating a sense of tranquility and natural splendor. Amongst the landscape, there are ruins of ancient structures, reflecting a historical element. These ruins add a touch of mystery and evoke a sense of the past, highlighting the passage of time and the transience of human existence. In the foreground, a man can be seen engrossed in drawing the ruins. His presence adds a narrative aspect to the piece, inviting viewers to contemplate the relationship between art and heritage. The man's focus on documenting the ruins suggests a quest for understanding and an appreciation for history and artistic expression.

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.
