Excerpt from Francesco Bartolozzi: A Biographical Essay

The name of Bartolozzi can hardly be mentioned by the connoisseur and the print collector without a little thrill of emotion. To possess a few of his famous stipple engravings makes any man's study a place of pride and pleasure, and the possessor himself a person to be envied by his friends. For these engravings have not only steadily increased in commercial value - which, after all, is one test of artistic immortality - but they are now prized by students of engraving as the most perfect and beautiful expression of what is now nearly a forsaken art - the stipple being little used as a means of reproduction. Although it cannot be claimed (though it is often, and wrongly, claimed) that Bartolozzi introduced this form of engraving to England, he stands alone as the pre-eminent master of it. It was he who caused it to be "all the rage" among the connoisseurs of the eighteenth century, it was he who founded a school of stipple engraving which had many good and gifted disciples, and by his genius and industry he founded, single-handed, a great collection of prints, which are now amongst the most treasured things in the world of art. It is not to be disputed that he had certain qualities which placed him above all his contemporaries who practised stipple engraving. The extraordinary ease and grace with which he wielded the graver, the exquisite delicacy of his touch, his greater sense of light and shade, give to his engravings, from the point of view of technique, a perfection which no one else obtained in this medium. And this technique is the perfect means of expressing his ideals of beauty.
