The Lady Meutas.

      IMITATIONS OF ORIGINAL DRAWINGS BY HANS HOLBEIN, IN THE COLLECTION OF HIS MAJESTY, FOR THE PORTRAITS OF ILLUSTRIOUS PERSONS OF THE COURT OF HENRY VIII. WITH BIOGRAPHICAL TRACTS. John Chamberlaine, London. 1795. Stipple engraving. Printed colour. Fine condition. Size: 20 x 27.5 cm. (8 x 11 inches) Bartolozzi developed his style to imitate the subtleties of renaissance and baroque chalk drawings and became deservedly famous for his stipple engraving. The portraits in this collection show how effective this technique was in reproducing with such incredible fidelity Holbein's original designs. Accompanied by a biographical tract giving a brief history of Lady Meutas.
