Arthur Pond (1701-1758) was a British painter, engraver, print-seller, dealer and collector. He studied with John Vanderbank before entering St Martin's Lane Academy in 1720. He visited Italy in 1725-7 with George Knapton, John Dyer and Daniel Wray. This print, one of three produced by Pond from caricatures by Maratti, derives from a drawing by sold through Christies in 1988. The British Museum have drawings by Hugh Howard, who studied in Italy with Maratti (1697-1700) which may have been the the basis for Pond's prints.
Hake: 89. See British Museum no. 1874,0808.119 for Howard's drawing.
