Bartolozzi was born in Florence but migrated to England, and in 1768 was elected as a founding member of the Royal Academy in London (the RA did not admit engravers at this time but made an exception in his case, getting around the rules by electing Bartolozzi as a painter). He was already hailed as the best engraver in Italy when he met George III's librarian Richard Dalton in 1763. Dalton enticed 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.

Two plates illustrating events described in Rapin's History of England. The first shows the aftermath of an assassination attempt on Edward Longshanks, heir to the English throne, in June 1272, during the 8th-9th Crusade. Although he killed his attacker he was weakened by the poisoned blade and could no longer campaign. On his journey home he discovered that his father had died in November: he did not reach England until early August 1274 and was crowned on the 19th. After the death of Eleanor in 1290 Edward marked the route of her funerary procession with the twelve 'Eleanor Crosses', including Charing Cross. The second scene shows Elizabeth Grey asking for the return of the lands of her dead husband, Sir John Grey, who had been killed at the Second Battle of St Albans in 1461, fighting for the Lancastrian cause. Three years later she secretly married the Yorkist Edward IV; her son, Edward V, was deposed by Richard III.

It concerns the First Crusade to the Holy Land (1096-9) and the Crusaders siege of Jerusalem under the leadership of Godfrey of Boulogne. His models for this heroic epic were Homer and Virgil's Aeneid. Tasso portrayed both imaginary characters and real historical persons, among them the heroes Rinaldo and Tancredi, and their Saracen ladies Armida and Clorinda.

Paris & Helen, directing Cupid to Inflame each others Heart w.th Love
[after Angelica Kauffman]
Published 12th May 1794 by Laurie & Whittle, No 53 Fleet Street, London
Mezzotint with small margins, platemark 350 x 250mm (13¾ x 9¾"). 'CL-B' collector's stamp verso.
Interesting example of fine art repurposed as a popular humorous print. Valentine Green's mezzotint of Angelica Kauffman's painting of Paris and Helen was an example of one of the finest printmakers in the country treating reproducing mythological subject matter by one of the most esteemed painters in the country. Here the composition becomes light-hearted and domestic. Originally a pair with 'Renaldo arresting the Arm of Armida', apparently also after Kauffman.
Ex: collection of the Late Hon. C. Lennox-Boyd; for Green's mezzotint from which this derives, see ref. 14873.

Fine stipple engraving, J. Whatman 1794 watermarked paper; platemark 380 x 295mm (15 x 11½"), with large margins.
Scene from Homer's 'Odyssey'. Penelope, the wife of Odysseus, sits at her loom awaiting the return of her husband.

Born in Switzerland, Kauffman lived in England from 1766 to 1781 and was one of only two women (the other being Mary Moser) amongst the thirty-six founding members of the Royal Academy of Arts.
