About

"John Fisher, Évêque de Rochester" portrait etching and stipple engraving, printed in color on pink paper and hand finished, from "The Book of Imitations of Original Drawings by Hans Holbein in the Collection of His Majesty" by Francesco Bartollozzi (1728–1815), after a drawing by Hans Holbein the Younger (1497-1543) in the 16th century. It was published by John Chamberlaine in London in 1793. The bust portrait of John Fisher depicts him facing and looking three-quarter to left, in cleric attire and hat. John Fisher (1469-1535), was an English Catholic bishop, cardinal, and theologian. Fisher was also an academic, and eventually served as Chancellor of the University of Cambridge. He was executed by order of King Henry VIII during the English Reformation for refusing to accept the King as Supreme Head of the Church of England and for upholding the Catholic Church's doctrine of papal supremacy. He was named a cardinal shortly before his death. The Catholic Church honored him by declaring him a martyr and making him a saint. He shares his feast day with St Thomas More, also beheaded by King Henry VIII, onJune 22 in the Catholic calendar of saints and on July 6 in the Church of England's calender. Inscription at the bottom of print reads: "Il Epyscopo de resester, c e r, Corpo Can 1525", and below image with artists' names and publication line: "From the Original Drawing by Hans Holbien. [sic] / Engrav'd by F. Bartolozzi R, A, Historical Engraver to his Majesty. / Publish'd as the Act directs Novr,, 1, 1793, by I. Chamberlaine." Inscribed in pen at bottom of mount "CARDINAL JOHN FISHER, BISHOP OF ROCHESTER. Born 1459. Beheaded 1535". The engraving is presented in a gold colored frame with beaded inner trim detail and a light cream color French mat. This portrait is held by multiple museums, including: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The British Museum, The National Portrait Gallery and the Chicago Art Institute.
