P.Violet Pinx. J. Bouilliard Sculpt.
Publish'd 1st Jully 1797 by J./ Boulliard London A Paris chezL'Auteur, Rue St.Thomas D'Enfer, Division des Thermes no 23 &720
Copper engraving. 365 x 250mm. Trimmed to just outside platemark with small tear into bottom right-hand side.
An engraver, etcher, and painter, b. at Florence, 1727; d. at Lisbon, 1815. His father was a goldsmith of excellent family and early taught the use of the burin to his boy who, when ten years of age, engraved two heads which gave promise of his future powers. In the Florentine Academy he learnt to work in oil, chalks, and aquarelle. Unsurpassed by any artist of his day in his knowledge of anatomy, and with a passion for the antique, young Bartolozzi became a master in depicting beauty of expression, movement, and form. From 1745 until 1751 he studied with Wagner, the Venetian historical engraver. This apprenticeship ended, he married Lucia Ferro and the young pair, on Cardinal Bottari's invitation went to Rome. Returning to Venice, his fame grew very rapidly, and in 1764, Dalton, King George III's librarian, took him to England, where he was appointed Engraver to the King, and, for years later, Royal Academician. In London he engraved over two thousand plates, nearly all in the stipple or the 'red-chalk style', a method recently invented by the French, but brought into vogue and elevated into a distinct art by Bartolozzi. He devoted himself to the human figure, and his engravings abound in sweet and tender types of beauty, graceful in form and outline. Everywhere are found delicate modulations of light and shade with a roundness, finish, and suggestion of flesh never before seen in engraved work. Bartolozzi's drawing was superb; and although he was a reproductive artist he improved the work he copied, especially the drawing, even Sir Joshua Reynolds thanking him for such a service. His pupils called him the 'god of drawing'. His splendid line work was obscured by the great popularity attained by his stippled prints, and his few etchings show a free, bold, and unfettered sweep of line. They, too, were reproduced from pictures by others, but the translation always improved on the original. In 1802 Bartolozzi went to Lisbon, where he was knighted, and where he worked and taught until his death. He was buried in the church of Saint Isabella. Among Bartolozzi's best reproductions are the 'Royal Academy Diploma', 'The Marlborough Gems', the 'Illustrations to Shakespeare', and some of his small 'Tickets', all in stipple; and 'The Silence' and 'Clytie', engraved in pure line.

Stipple. 279 x 215mm. 11 x 8½".
Thomas Bewick (1753-1828), wood-engraver. At the age of fourteen Bewick was apprenticed to Ralph Beilby, an engraver in Newcastle. He devoted himself to engraving on wood, and is credited with reviving this art and establishing it as a major form of printmaking. Bewick developed the technique of cutting a design into hardwood cut across, rather than with, the grain, using a sharp tool called a bruin. In 1775, he received a payment from the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce for a wood engraving of the Huntsman and the Old Hound. Bewick's most important works are illustrations for books such as A General History of Quadrupeds (1790) and A History of British Birds (1797 and 1804).

[n.d. c.1847.]
Engraving. 121 x 78mm.
Edward Cocker (1631-1676) was an English engraver who also taught writing and arithmetic. Cocker was the reputed author of the famous Arithmetick, the popularity of which has added a phrase ("according to Cocker") to the list of English proverbialisms. He is credited with the authorship and execution of some fourteen sets of copy slips, one of which, Daniel's Copy-Book, ingraven by Edward Cocker, Philomath (1664), is preserved in the British Museum. Samuel Pepys, in his Diary, makes very favourable mention of Cocker, who appears to have displayed great skill in his art. Cocker's Arithmetick, the fifty-second edition of which appeared in 1748, and which passed through over 100 editions in all, was not published during the lifetime of its reputed author, the first impression being dated 1678. Augustus de Morgan in his Arithmetical Books (1847) argues that the work was a forgery of the editor and publisher, John Hawkins. Ruth Wallis, in 1997, wrote an article in Annals of Science, claiming DeMorgan's analysis was flawed and Cocker was the real author.

Copper engraving. Plate 360 x 242mm. 14¼ x 9½". Foxing, staining and creasing.
Georg-Wolfgang Knorr (1705-1761) German engraver. He learnt the engraving traded under J.L. Blank and had his first great success with his illustrations for Johannes Jacob Sheuzer's "Physica sacra" (1731), through which he became interested in the natural science. He spent his whole life in Nuremberg, although he did understake several short trips. He published numerous engravings, some as single folios and some in books. Famous works are "Deliciae naturae selectae" (1766) and the "Vergnügen der Augen und des Gemüths". This portrait seems to have been commission by Knorr and then engraved by Johann Adam Schweikart, 1722-1787 from Nurenberg, who invented his own method of engraving in an aquatint manner. Schweikart took this method to Florence in the 1750's and where this print was published and his method of engraving was adopted by many of the Florentine print makers.
