Footnotes

  • SCARCE COMPLETE SUITE OF ENGRAVINGS AFTER THE RAPHAEL CARTOONS. Nicholas Dorigny (1658-1746) was approached, by the antiquarian George Vertue, to make the engravings "The prints were sold by subscription at four guineas a set. Dorigny was provided with limited royal patronage in the form of lodgings at Hampton Court, coals, and a bottle of wine a day" (V & A website). On completion in 1719 they were dedicated to George I, and in recognition of their success Dorigny was knighted in 1720, the first of only two individuals in the history of British art to be knighted for having made particular prints.
