Stipple Portraits by Francesco Bartolozzi and Gerald Brockhurst

Portraits by Francesco Bartolozzi and Gerald Brockhurst utilizing the stipple technique will comprise our February exhibition. The stipple technique involves the distribution of dots of various sizes and densities across the image surface. During the late eighteenth century, printmakers including Bartolozzi introduced color to stipple engraving, which allowed for increasingly realistic portrayals, evidenced in Bartolozzi’s depictions after Holbein of Henry VIII’s court. In the 1920s, English artist Gerald Brockhurst reintroduced the stipple technique in his stylized etchings of women inspired by the work of the renaissance masters.
