[Shepherdess sitting with sheep outside a cottage, spinning wool] Guidata ch'a la Greggia Irminda poi / S'asside e sta filando i Lini suio
Francesco Bartolozzi scolp. Appo Teodoro Viero Ven.d 1774
Etching, fine impression; scarce; platemark 235 x 175mm (9¼ x 7"). Thread margins.
One a series of six pastoral subjects etched after designs by the Venice-based publisher and artist Teodoro Viero (1740-95) by Francesco Bartolozzi (1725-1815). Bartlozzi was a Florentine engraver who 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). He was already hailed as the best engraver in Italy when he met George III's librarian Richard Dalton in 1763. Dalton invited 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. Fine impression from the collection of Dr. Augusto Calabi of Milan, art historian who co-authored (with A.B. de Vesme) the authoritative catalogue raisonné of Bartolozzi's work. Inscription 'Solo all'Albertine' verso suggests the only other impression known to Calabi was in the Albertine Museum, Vienna.
