A.W. Callcott. No 19.
[n.d., c.1840.]
Tinted lithograph. Printed area 300 x 465mm, 11¾ x 18¼". Tear just entering printed area.
A smuggling ketch landed on a beach below surrounded by excise officers on horseback. Sir Augustus Wall Callcott (1779-1844), a friendly rival of J.M.W. Turner, exhibited the original painting (the source of the title above) at the Royal Academy in 1822. The subjects was probably inspired by Callcott's patron, Sir Thomas Heathcote, MP for Hampshire, a county plagued by smugglers, although the high cliff in the background does not like Hampshire. It is known that the oil was still in Heatcote's possession when he died in 1881.
The oil is currently for sale at Agnews, who describe it as a 'recently rediscovered masterpiece'.
