London Pubd. as the Act directs F. Bartolozzi, 1788
Etching printed in sepia, platemark 240 x 295mm (9½ x 11½") very large margins.
A drawing lesson. Etching by Francesco Bartolozzi (1725-1815), Florentine engraver and founding member of the Royal Academy in 1768. After meeting George III's librarian Richard Dalton in Italy 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. This is the medium employed here, one of many prints he made from designs by his fellow Italian, G.B. Cipriani (it was published in 'A Set of Etchings by Francis Bartolozzi R.A. in Imitation of Drawings from the Sketches of the Late John Baptist Cipriani R.A.' in 1788.

Michael Angelo [...] F. Bartolozzi R.A.
London Pub.d as the Act directs Jan. 1 1795 by A. Molteno Printseller to her Royal Highness the Duchess of York No. 76 St. James's Street
Soft-ground etching, rare, platemark 355 x 300mm (14 x 11¾"), with very large margins. Creases top right in margin.
Etching of Michelangelo's Taddei Tondo, which since 1830 was been in the collection of the Royal Academy of Arts, London. The text below the image claims that the print was made by the celebrated Italian printmaker (and founding member of the Royal Academy) Francesco Bartolozzi and published in 1795, but this cannot be true, as the tondo was not acquired by George Beaumont until 1822. After Beaumont died in 1827, the print was briefly in possession of Lady Beaumont (who is named as the owner of the tondo on this print) before it waas received by the RA in 1830. During this time an etching of the tondo after a drawing by William Young Ottley was made by F.C. Lewis and published in London by W.B. Tiffin in 1828. This print would appear to be an altered impression of that plate, with the publisher (potentially Molteno, who was active until 1845) backdating the print and attributing the print to Bartolozzi, dead by this time but one of the foremost eighteenth century engravers, in a bid to increase demand for the print. In a recent book about the tondo, Alison Cole described the source drawing by Ottley as follows: 'the drawing sensitively attempts to amend the 'unfinished' nature of the tondo, in much the same way as plaster casts of the period tend to do, focusing on making sense of the shadowy figure of St John and the 'dove' and further delineating the exquisite features of the Virgin. Ottley probably drew the tondo soon after the purchase was made [by George Beaumont] (c.1822)'.

Lithograph, rare. Printed area 330 x 230mm (13 x 9")
The famous Warwick Vase, a Roman marble vase with Bacchic ornament, discovered in the silt of a marshy pond at Hadrian's Villa about 1771 by Gavin Hamilton. He sold the fragments to Sir William Hamilton who repaired it with Carrara marble and shipped it to his nephew George Greville, 2nd Earl of Warwick, who set it on a lawn at Warwick Castle before building a conservatory for it. As a famous piece, a mould was made of it and two full-size bronze replicas were cast, one now in Windsor Castle, the other in the Fitzwilliam Museum. At auction in 1978 the vase was purchased by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but after it was declared an object of national importance an export licence was denied. It is now in the Burrell Collection near Glasgow in Scotland.
