Etched by Francesco Bartolozzi (1725-1815), Italian printmaker who was invited to London by George III's librarian Richard Dalton, and who in 1768 was elected as a founding member of the Royal Academy in London.

In 1801 he was invited to Lisbon to reform the royal printing press, and he spent his final years in Portugal.
