Magnificent copper engraving by Francesco Bartolozzi, ater Giovanni Francesco Barbieri (Guercino). Publishing in 1646 years, Italy. The sample is taken from the work "Original Paintings and Drawings of Guercino in the Collection of His Majesty."
This artwork portrays a tender moment between the Virgin Mary and the young Jesus. In the painting, the Virgin Mary is depicted as a gentle and nurturing mother figure. She is seen sitting on a chair or a throne, adorned in rich robes and a halo around her head symbolizing her divinity. Mary lovingly holds the infant Jesus in her arms, cradling him close to her chest. The focus of the painting is on the interaction between the two figures. Mary is shown as she teaches Jesus, representing her role as the mother and spiritual guide. She tenderly points to something, perhaps a book or an object, while the curious Jesus gazes up at her, engrossed in the lesson.

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.
