The Bishop of Rochester.
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 biographical tract, giving a brief history of John Fisher, Bishop of Rochester, whose staunch support of the Catholic church during the Reformation led to his execution. Engraved by BARTOLOZZI, Francesco.
