Engraving with large margins. Platemark: 175 x 271mm. (7 x 10¾").
A shoulder length portrait of Italian Renaissance painter Giorgione (Giorgio Barbarelli, 1477 - 1510). Along with Titian, Giorgione was one of the founders of the distinctive Venetian school of painting. 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.
