A beautiful and tender depiction of a mother and child titled “Maternal Happiness”.
Engraved by Francesco Bartolozzi after a work by Giovanni Cipriani published in Georgian London in 1795.
A young mother in classical dress wearing a lace head covering, embraces her child, whose arms stretch out to her. This appealing late eighteenth century copper engraving is a good and clear impression on a wove paper within an elaborate rococo gilt gesso and wood decorated fronton frame with floral shell crest.
Virtually all antiquarian prints are subject to some normal aging due to use and time and as can be seen in the photos there is some trivial toning the right shoulder of the mother. This is very feint and does not detract from this beautiful engraving.
The frame is in first class condition.
