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 Thomas Earl of Surry.

Stipple engraving. Printed colour. Very good condition; some stains to the top left margin, not affecting the image. Size: 22.5 x 28.5 cm. (9 x 11 inches)
