Engraving with large margins. Platemark: 175 x 260mm. (7 x 10¼").
A half-length portrait of the Venetian painter Tintoretto (Jacopo Robusti, 1518 - 1594), dressed in a black shawl with his right hand resting on books. This portrait was part of A. F. Gori’s monumental Museum Florentium, which set out to engrave all the portraits of painters, architects, sculptors and patrons of the arts in the major galleries of Florence. This vast undertaking was issued in individual parts as it took over thirty years (1731-1766) to complete. The bulk of the engraving fell to four of Florence’s most rennowned artists, Giovanni Domenico Campiglia, Pietro Pazzi, Cosimo Mogalli and Lorenzini.
