DESCRIPTION:
Magnificent copper engraving by Francesco Bartolozzi, ater Giovanni Francesco Barbieri (Guercino). Publishing in 1764 years, England. The sample is taken from the work "Original Paintings and Drawings of Guercino in the Collection of His Majesty."
In the painting you can see Flora dressed in a luxurious dress with fresh flowers and petals, which symbolize the renewal of nature during spring. She holds a branch with blooming flowers and leaves in her hands, reflecting her connection with vegetation. Around her are boys who perhaps personify the gods of flowers and the spirit of awakening nature. She is famous for her depiction of the goddess Flora, who is a symbol of spring and flowering, surrounded by boys. The artist conveyed beauty and vitality in his depiction, displaying soft and detailed contours, expressive gestures and vibrant colors. "Flora with Boys" reflects the ideals of beauty, youth and nature with the elegance and grace characteristic of the works of Bartolozzi Francesco.
Francesco Bartolozzi is an Italian draftsman, watercolor painter and engraver, the greatest master of etching, dotted style, in particular colored dotted line and pencil etching style. From 1764 he worked in England, where he created a school of color reproduction engravings.
Giovanni Francesco Barbieri (1591 – 1666) better known as Guercino, was an Italian Baroque
painter and draftsman from Cento in the Emilia region, who was active in Rome and Bologna. The vigorous naturalism of his early manner contrasts with the classical equilibrium of his later works. His many drawings are noted for their luminosity and lively style.
