C. Knight was a skilled stipple engraver and pupil of Bartolozzi. Bartolozzi, the main engraver of this collection, 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 biographical tract giving a brief history of the Cornish gentleman. Engraved by KNIGHT, C.

Size: 230 x 330 mm. Stipple engraving. Printed colour. Fine condition.
