Bartolozzi was born in Florence but migrated to England, and in 1768 was elected as a founding member of the Royal Academy in London (the RA did not admit engravers at this time but made an exception in his case, getting around the rules by electing Bartolozzi as a painter). He was already hailed as the best engraver in Italy when he met George III's librarian Richard Dalton in 1763. Dalton enticed Bartolozzi to London with a promise of an appointment as engraver to the king. In England he became the most celebrated exponent of the 'stipple' technique whereby he produced prints using dots rather than lines. In 1801 Bartolozzi was invited to Lisbon to reform the royal printing press, and he spent his final years in Portugal.

On his journey home he discovered that his father had died in November: he did not reach England until early August 1274 and was crowned on the 19th. After the death of Eleanor in 1290 Edward marked the route of her funerary procession with the twelve 'Eleanor Crosses', including Charing Cross. The second scene shows Elizabeth Grey asking for the return of the lands of her dead husband, Sir John Grey, who had been killed at the Second Battle of St Albans in 1461, fighting for the Lancastrian cause. Three years later she secretly married the Yorkist Edward IV; her son, Edward V, was deposed by Richard III.

Two characters from Tasso's 'Jerusalem Delivered'. Torquato Tasso (1544 - 1595) was an Italian poet. He was author of 'Aminta', 'Rinaldo and Armida' published in 1562, and 'Gerusalemme Liberata', finished in 1575. It concerns the First Crusade to the Holy Land (1096-9) and the Crusaders siege of Jerusalem under the leadership of Godfrey of Boulogne. His models for this heroic epic were Homer and Virgil's Aeneid. Tasso portrayed both imaginary characters and real historical persons, among them the heroes Rinaldo and Tancredi, and their Saracen ladies Armida and Clorinda.

Paris & Helen, directing Cupid to Inflame each others Heart w.th Love
[after Angelica Kauffman]
Published 12th May 1794 by Laurie & Whittle, No 53 Fleet Street, London
Mezzotint with small margins, platemark 350 x 250mm (13¾ x 9¾"). 'CL-B' collector's stamp verso.
Interesting example of fine art repurposed as a popular humorous print. Valentine Green's mezzotint of Angelica Kauffman's painting of Paris and Helen was an example of one of the finest printmakers in the country treating reproducing mythological subject matter by one of the most esteemed painters in the country. Here the composition becomes light-hearted and domestic. Originally a pair with 'Renaldo arresting the Arm of Armida', apparently also after Kauffman.

Rosalind.
Rosalind. vide Shakespears play of As you like it.
Painted by Angelica Kauffman. Engrav'd by Bartolozzi.
Lon. Pub'd Feb.y 10 1792 by J. Read, Coventry Court, Coventry St.
Stipple, platemark 195 x 150mm (7¾ x 6"). Trimmed inside platemark left and right.
Rosalind, from Shakespeare's 'As You Like It', after a painting by Angelica Kauffman, RA (1741 - 1807), Swiss-born Neoclassical painter who had a successful career in London and Rome. She attracted international patronage and was much admired by fellow artists. Kauffman's funeral in Rome was arranged by Antonio Canova and attended by representatives from both the Roman and foreign academies, carrying along in triumph of two of Kauffman's own works in obvious emulation of Raphael’s funeral. Stipple engraving by Francesco Bartolozzi (1725-1815). Bartolozzi was born in Florence but migrated to England, and in 1768 was elected as a founding member of the Royal Academy in London (the RA did not admit engravers at this time but made an exception in his case). He was already hailed as the best engraver in Italy when he met George III's librarian Richard Dalton in 1763. Dalton invited Bartolozzi to London with a promise of an appointment as engraver to the king. In England he became the most celebrated exponent of the 'stipple' technique whereby he produced prints using dots rather than lines. In 1801 Bartolozzi was invited to Lisbon to reform the royal printing press, and he spent his final years in Portugal. This impression from the collection of Dr. Augusto Calabi of Milan, art historian who co-authored (with A.B. de Vesme) the authoritative catalogue raisonné of Bartolozzi's work. This state is not listed in the catalogue.
