Bartolozzi, Francesco


Bartolozzi, Francesco

▪ Italian engraver
born Sept. 21, 1727, Florence, Italy
died March 7, 1815, Lisbon, Port.

      Florentine engraver in the service of George III of England.

 Bartolozzi, the son of a goldsmith, studied painting in Florence, trained as an engraver in Venice, and began his career in Rome. In 1764 he was invited to London, where he remained for 40 years. For his patron, George III, he executed numerous engravings, including those after Hans Holbein's drawings at Windsor. He also made many engravings of paintings by Italian masters and by his friends, the fashionable painters Giovanni Cipriani (Cipriani, Giovanni Battista) and Angelica Kauffmann (Kauffmann, Angelica).

 Bartolozzi was not the inventor of the so-called crayon manner of engraving, which imitated the subtleties of chalk drawings, but he made it the fashion. In 1802 he was invited to Lisbon as director of the National Academy. His son, Gaetano Stephano (1757–1821), also an engraver, was the father of Madame Vestris (Vestris, Madame).
