Magnificent copper engraving by Francesco Bartolozzi, ater Giovanni Francesco Barbieri (Guercino). Publishing in 1764 years, Italy. The sample is taken from the work "Original Paintings and Drawings of Guercino in the Collection of His Majesty."
The painting depicts the Holy Family, which refers to the Christian depiction of the Virgin Mary, Joseph, and the infant Jesus. In this composition, the figures are depicted in a traditional and reverential manner. The atmosphere surrounding them is peaceful and illuminated, symbolizing their divine and sacred significance. The artwork captures the tenderness and love within the Holy Family, emphasizing their importance in Christian tradition. This painting is a testament to Guercino's artistic skill and Bartolozzi's ability to translate it into a print, making it accessible to a wider audience. "Holy Family" holds historical and religious value, beautifully portraying the endearing relationship between Mary, Joseph, and Jesus. The inclusion of a globe in the composition symbolizes the role of Christ as the ruler and savior of the world.
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.
