Antique 18th Century Miniature Oval Engraving After Bartolozzi Pressed Brass Frame C 1780 - image 1 of 8

This wonderful hand coloured Georgian stipple and line engraving was produced in England during the late 18th century, circa 1780. The engraving features a lady writing music whilst playing a lyre with a putti whispering in her ear.

A variation of this engraving was used for several Felice Giardini (b 1716 – d 1796) concert tickets that were published in the 1780s. They were drawn by Giovanni Battista Cipriani RA (b 1727 – d 1785) and engraved by Francesco Bartolozzi RA (b 1727 – d 1815).
