The Lady Eliot.
Conrad Martin Metz was an eminent engraver in the chalk manner and aquatint. He received his education in art under the celebrated Bartolozzi. 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. Metz also specialised in imitations and facsimiles of old masters such as Holbein. Accompanied by a biographical tract giving a brief history of Lady Eliot. Engraved by METZ, C.
