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."
This artwork depicts a serene and intimate scene featuring three women and a child on a couch. The composition is harmonious and balanced, with the figures positioned in a triangular formation. The central focus of the painting is the child lying on the couch, surrounded by the three women. The child appears peaceful and content, perhaps sleeping or resting. The women, presumably family members or caregivers, display a sense of tenderness and affection towards the child. The artist pays great attention to detail, capturing the delicate features and expressions of the figures. The use of light and shadow adds depth and enhances the three-dimensional effect. The color palette is soft and gentle, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. Overall, "Three women, with a child lying on a couch" showcases Bartolozzi's skill in reproducing Guercino's original painting. It conveys a sense of maternal love, tranquility, and the bonds between family members.
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.
