Full length portrait of the Italian dramatic Baritone opera singer Antonio Tamburini (1800-1876) in the role of Riccardo in Vincenzo Bellini's opera "I Puritani". Tamburini was one of four international singers who, along with Guilia Grisi, Giovanni Battista Rubini and Luigi Lablache, was known as one of the "Puritani Quartet". The group acquired the name on account of the large quantity of performances the group performed together which included a private performance for Crown Princess Victoria on her 15th birthday. From A.E.Chalon's "Recollections of Italian Opera 1835".
