[Manuel Jorge Gomes de Sepúlveda]
[Manuel Jorge Gomes de Sepúlveda] Sepulveda em Bragança Alçando Amao Disse Pelo Principe Regente D. Joao. [...]
Ignacio da Silva Valente pinx. F. Bartolozzi sculp em Lisboa em 1812
Engraving, platemark 270 x 205mm (10½ x 8") very large margins.
Manuel Jorge Gomes de Sepúlveda 1735-1814), Portuguese soldier and governor of Capitania do Rio Grande de São Pedro in Portuguese-governed Brazil. Engraving by Francesco Bartolozzi (1725-1815). Born in Florence, Bartolozzi was 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 was one of Bartolozzi's final prints; its rarity can be deduced from the fact that when Calabi and de Vesme included the print in their Bartolozzi catalogue raisonné it was without having actually seen an impression.

Miguel I (1802-66), King of Portugal (1828-34). A son of João VI, Miguel revolted against his father, who exiled him to Vienna. After the death of João VI, the heir-apparent Pedro remained in Brazil, where he had become Emperor. Pedro abdicated the portuguese throne in favour of his daughter Maria regent of Portugal, but Miguel deposed her in 1828, with the support of the British Prime Minister, the Duke of Wellington. In 1831 Pedro abdicated the Brazilian throne and led an invasion of Portugal, beginning a three-year civil war which ended with Miguel abdicating. He spent the rest of his life in exile in Italy, England and Germany. From a series of portraits by lithographer Antoine Maurin dit l'aîné (1793 - 1860).

[Engraved by by Jacques Philippe Le Bas.]
Avec privilège du Roy. [Published by Le Bas, Jacques François Blondel, and Veuve Chéreau, Paris, 1757.]
Etching, image 253 x 360mm. Trimmed within plate.
The tower of San Roque in Lisbon after its destruction in the Lisbon earthquake of 1755. The Great Lisbon Earthquake took place on November 1, 1755 at around 9:40 in the morning. The earthquake was followed by a tsunami and fire, which caused near-total destruction of the city and adjoining areas. Estimates place the death toll between 60,000 to 100,000 people, making it one of the most destructive earthquakes in history. The earthquake accentuated political tensions in Portugal and profoundly disrupted the country's eighteenth century colonial ambitions. The event was widely discussed and dwelt upon by European Enlightenment philosophers, and inspired major developments in theodicy and in the philosophy of the sublime. As the first earthquake studied scientifically for its effects over a large area, it led to the birth of modern seismology. Plate 1 from a series consisting of a titleplate and six views, 'Recueil des plus belles ruines de Lisbonne causées par le tremblement et par le feu du premier Novembre 1755'. The artists, MM. Paris and Pedegache were probably amateur local artists. The series was advertised by Le Bas in the 'Mercure de France' in March 1758 at the price of 12 livres on grand papier de chapelet, and 10 livres on grand raisin. A set of six piracies of the views was published by Robert Sayer in London (see 7971).
