Hugford's biography of Gabbiani remains a major source of information on this painter. Hugford, himself a painter and teacher (both Bartolozzi and Cipriani were among his pupils), was equally well known as a collector and dealer. Several of the drawings which he acquired passed to British collectors such as Horace Mann and Horace Walpole.

Many plates imitate the manner of a wash by using a controlled lavis technique invented by J.A. Schweikart.
