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. Untitled and unaccompanied by a biographical tract, it is impossible to say what lady this is a portrait of. Engraved by BARTOLOZZI, Francesco

Stipple engraving. Printed colour. Good condition, despite some slight browning and a horizontal crease at centre. Size: 18.5 x 26 cm. (7 x 10 inches)
