Francis Bartolozzi Esq RA.
W.Artaud Pinx / Pastorini & P.W. Tomkins sculp.
London Published Feb 1st 1803, by H. Macklin, Poets Gallery, Fleet Street.
Engraving with small margins, 380 x 510mm. Slightly trimmed on left border.
Francesco Bartolozzi (1725-1815), Florentine engraver, elected a founding member of the Royal Academy in 1768 (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 portrait was published after Bartolozzi had left England for the continent.
