Robert Dighton was an English artist and engraver active in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. He was known for his caricatures and portraits. In particular, he depicted London society and politicians of his time. His work often featured bright colors and a keen sense of humor. Dighton also created caricatures of stage actors and famous personalities, and also worked in the genre of portraiture. His work may be featured in fine art collections as he made significant contributions to depicting the social life and political events of his time through the lens of his art.
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.
