Frank Short [pencil signature] Frank Short Sculp After J.M.W. Turner. [Short's monogram in image lower left.]
London, Published Novr. 1st. 1887, by Robt. Dunthorne at The Rembrandt Head, in Vigo Street.
Etching with mezzotint in sepia on india paper, 215 x 290mm. 8½ x 11½". A good impression, with full margins. Very slight foxing.
An evocative view in the Swiss Alps by Sir Frank Short RA PRE (1857 - 1945), one of the most important late Victorian exponents of the etching revival. He was both a reproductive and an original printmaker and also a noted teacher, holding the post of head of the engraving school at the Royal College of Art. From 'Selections from the Liber studiorum of J.M.W. Turner, R. A., for artists, art students, and amateurs : a drawing-book suggested by the writings of Mr. Ruskin...' (London: Blackie, 1890). Turner's 'Mountainous' subjects were the particular favourites of the Victorian art critic John Ruskin, who did more than anyone else to champion the virtues of the Liber as a drawing book for artists in the nineteenth century. Ruskin saw close study of the Liber as a means of training the young artist to see and draw what was true to nature.

Jason.
Jason.
Drawn & Etched by J.M.W. Turner Esq. R.A. Engraved by C. Turner.
Published as the Act directs by J.M.W. Turner Harley Street [1807]
Etching and mezzotint with very large margins, platemark 210 x 290mm (8¼ x 11½").
The Greek hero Jason stealing up on a dragon (largely concealed by folliage), who he must outwit to gain the golden fleece. One of the first plates in Turner's 'Liber Studiorum', based on a 1802 painting (Tate Britain, N00471). The Liber Studiorum was published in several parts between 1807 and 1819, by which time Turner's position as the pre-eminent British landscape painter of his day was assured. In this series, exceptional amongst Turner prints for the extent of the artist's involvement (he both etched and published this plate, leaving only the mezzotinting to his namesake Charles Turner), he sought to emulate the 17th century French artist Claude Lorraine. Claude's 'Libro di Verita', a book of drawings sold to the Duke of Devonshire, had been engraved by Richard Earlom to much acclaim some thirty years earlier. In many ways Turner's project invited comparisons with that of his great precursor.
