L'Africain Hospitalier

Painted by G. Morland. / Gravé par la Cit.ne Rollet
Se vend à Paris chez Depeuille, Rue Franciade Section de Bon Conseil No 52 [c.1791]
Stipple printed in colours, sheet 430 x 490mm (17 x 19¼"). Cut to platemark.
Negro natives rescue passengers from a shipwreck and comfort them on shore. Engraved after one of a pair of paintings by English artist George Morland, 'African Hospitality' (which contrasted with the pendant 'Slave Trade', which depicted the brutality of the Slavers). When Morland’s original painting of 'Slave Trade' was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1788 it was the first expression of abolitionist protest in the visual arts, a departure from Morland's usual English rural scenes. The paintings were engraved by celebrated mezzotinter J.R. Smith, who embarked on a subscription scheme to pay for publication of prints. His prints were published during the peak of anti-slavery fervour was reaching its peak between 1788 and 1792. This is a French copy published during the revolutionary period, with text read at the 'Convention Nationale par un homme de couleur'.
For J.R. Smith's mezzotint see Frankau: 5, ii of iii; D'Oench, 314 and Chapter 5, 'The Slavery Prints'.

Dancing dogs
Painted by G .Morland, Engraved by T. Gaugain.
London Publish'd Feby. 1790 by T. Gaugain Manor Street, Chelsea.
Colour printed stipple engraving 405 x 510mm 16 x 20 inches image. Trimmed to image, letters and title lost, very good colour of this rare print.
Companion to "Guinea Pigs", Geroge Morland (1763-1804) was an English painter, mainly of scenes from rural life, the son and pupil of Henry Morland (?1716–97), a painter of portraits and fancy pictures who was also a dealer, forger, and restorer. George was precocious and a fluent worker and produced a huge amount of work, in spite of leading a dissolute life and often being drunk, in hiding from his creditors, or in prison. His name is particularly associated with small scenes of middle- and lower-class rural life, usually drawn more from the tavern and the stable than the cottage. The quality of his work is uneven, but at his best he showed a spirited technique and a sure sense of tone. His paintings became extremely popular and he was much imitated and forged; numerous prints were made after his work, some of them by his brother-in-law William Ward. With Wheatley and Ibbetson he established the village scene in the English painter's repertory.

[Eleven erotic mezzotints.]
[Eleven erotic mezzotints.]
[W. Ward and J.R. Smith(?) after G. Morland.]
[British, n.d., c.1790.]
Scarce set of eleven privately-issued pornographic mezzotints, illustrating scenes from popular novels. Each plate c. 335 x 260mm (13¼ x 10¼"). Images generally good, some foxing. They are sandwich mounted; all appear to have margins.
These are (ostensibly) illustrations of Fielding's Tom Jones, Cleland's Fanny Hill, and Rousseau's La Nouvelle Heloise and Les Confessions. Radically different from George Morland's (1763-1804) more familiar rustic genre, landscapes and elegant portraits of decorous young ladies, these plates graphically depict sexual intercourse and activity in a variety of situations. They are almost certainly engraved by William Ward (1766-1826) and John Raphael Smith (1752-1812), with whom Morland enjoyed a fruitful business partnership. All plates captioned, with the appropriate literary reference; all are (naturally) unsigned. Some of the faces, and other more intimate parts of the human anatomy, have been reworked (one impression in particular is rather faint). In June 2012 Christie's sold an album of 13 similar erotic plates titled 'Facetiae'. The BM lists ten on its website.
