Notes

Johann Adam Bernhard Ritter von Bartsch (1757 - 1821) was an Austrian scholar and printmaker who worked primarily in etching and engraving. Bartsch established what has become the definitive numbering system, bearing his name (e.g. "Bartsch 17" or "B17"), The numbers list the works by category, roughly following the contemporary hierarchy of genres, except that self-portraits come first, followed by biblical subjects, then subjects of saints, allegories, and so on. In his lifetime, Bartsch executed over 500 plates.

Between 1803 and his death in 1821 Bartsch published 21 volumes of the book "Le Peintre Graveur", a pioneering catalogue of old master prints by Dutch, Flemish, German, and Italian painter-engravers from the 15th to the 17th century. References to "Bartsch" normally mean this work. It has been reprinted five times, most recently in 1982.
