HOLBEIN, Hans. Engraved by BARTOLOZZI, Francesco.
[Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk?]
Bartolozzi developed his style to imitate the subtleties of renaissance and baroque chalk drawings and became deservedly famous for his stipple engraving. The portraits in this collection show how effective this technique was in reproducing with such incredible fidelity Holbein’s original designs. Accompanied by a brief explanation of the doubts surrounding the subject of this portrait, thought by many to be of Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk.
