Francesco Bartolozzi, Engraving, George Augustus Elliot, Lord Heathfield.

George Augustus Elliot

Here we have a large and rare Francesco Bartolozzi Stipple and Engraving of George Augustus Elliot, Lord Heathfield, Governor of Gibralta engraved after a painting by Antonio Cesare Poggi. This engraving was engraved by Bartolozzi and then published on September the 8th 1788 by A. Poggi, of St. Georges Row, Hyde Park, London.  At the bottom of the engraving it states;  Engraved by F. Bartolozzi R.A. Historical Engraver to his Majesty 1788. The engraving is not in the best of condition, but it is 225 years old, it is tatty and torn around the edges with only one small tear/loss of paper that goes into the top of the image, the size of a finger nail and could be easily covered with a mount. The image itself is fairly good and looks like it is only suffering some age toning and 2-3 very small nicks, which are hardly noticable. The engraving is stuck to an old card backing, probably done around 100 years ago. The measurements overal are approx.  485ml.w.  x  535ml.h. These engravings usually sell for around £150-£200 + p&p, this one is priced to reflect it’s condition.   (click on picture to enlarge image)   (B.)260213
