Francesco Bartolozzi

Bartolozzi, Francesco (fränchĕsˈkō bärtōlôtˈsē) [key], 1727–1815, Italian engraver. In Florence he studied drawing and painting and formed a lifelong friendship with Cipriani, most of whose plates he later engraved. In 1764 he went to London, where he became one of the original members of the Royal Academy. He was responsible for the vogue in England of the stipple technique of engraving, which greatly improved methods of reproduction.
