”Between 1792 and 1800 the accomplished Italian printmaker Francesco Bartolozzi (1727-1815), engraver to the king, made a number of sophisticated stipple engravings, virtual facsimiles in colour, of the Holbein drawings at Windsor, which were published by John Chamberlaine, the Royal Librarian. […] The Holbein venture reflected the taste for collecting ‘heads’ and ‘effigies’, which gained increasing fever towards the end of the eighteenth century, but can be traced back to amateurs, such as the diarist Samuel Pepys (1633-1703), who amassed large print collections a hundred years earlier” (Jeremy Wood, ”Collectors and the popularity of portrait drawings in Britain”, in: The Encounter. Drawings from Leonardo to Rembrandt, ed. Tanya Cooper and Charlotte Bolland; London, National Portrait Gallery, 2017, p. 48).
