Bartolozzi was born in Florence. He went to Venice and studied engraving. His first productions in Venice were plates in the style of Marco Ricci, Zuccarelli, which began to draw attention. He then moved to London in 1764 where he lived for nearly forty years. He produced a large body of engravings, a large proportion of them are from the works of Cipriani and Angelica Kauffman. He also drew sketches of his own in red chalk. Soon after arriving in London, he was appointed "Engraver to the King" with a salary of £300 a year. He was elected a founding member of the Royal Academy in 1768. In 1802, Bartolozzi accepted the post of director of the National Academy of Lisbon, the city where he died.
