A Century of Prints from Drawings Published with Notes by Charles Rogers F.R.S. & S.A.L.
GB Cipriamni inv et del. F. Bartolozzi Sculp, in Londini 1766.

This frontispiece was designed by Cipriani for Rogers' first volume. In its preface he explains the allegorical figures; the winged figure, Genius of Design, hands drawings to Painting and Sculpture. The image illustrates Rogers' belief in the importance of drawing in informing the other arts. Italian artist Cipriani was already becoming well established in the English art world and had found favour with George III when Rogers commissioned this work from him. He was one of the founding members of the Royal Academy and was the designer of its diploma certificate. Published by Charles Rogers (1711-1784), an eminent eighteenth century collector, this publication consisted of 112 prints accompanied by introductory texts on the artists represented. It highlights the wealth of old master drawings held in contemporary private British collections and is among the most impressive art historical writings of 18th century England.
