The Lady Barkley [actually Elizabeth Dauncey].
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 Lady Barkley, although the portrait was mislabelled in the eighteenth century: it is in fact a portrait of Elizabeth Dauncey (b. 1506), daughter of Sir Thomas More.
