[Painted by Edwin Long, R.A. Engraved by G. Sidney Hunt.] Signed in pencil.
London June 1st. 1892. Published by Fairless & Beeforth. 128, New Bond Street, W. Copyright Registered.
A mixed-method engraving. Signed artist's proof. 673 x 458mm. 26½ x 18". Uncut. Mint.
Edwin Long (1829-1891) was born in Bath, had an early and precocious talent for drawing, studied at the RA Schools from 1849, and also was a student under John Phillip, who encouraged him to travel. in 1874 he visited Egypt and Syria, and this was the start of his career as an Orientalist painter. He developed a rich, exotic style, strong in detail and often on canvases of large size, allowing him to show long processions, enormous palaces or sweeps of mountains on an epic scale. His best years were in the 1870s-80s, when he was a popular, successful artist specialising in biblical stories and life in ancient Egypt. He became ARA in 1876 and RA in 1881. Fairless and Beeforth commissioned the trilogy of paintings taken from Judges xi, 30-40, where Jepthah's Vow is recorded. This picture with The Martyr and the Return [see ref:14087 & 14094] make the trilogy.

Thereafter Goodall painted mainly scenes from Egyptian life with Biblical associations. Goodall was elected RA in 1864 and enjoyed great popularity during this time, but his fortunes later declined greatly and in 1902 he was declared bankrupt.

The Flower Girl.
The Flower Girl. From an Original Picture by Murillo in the Dulwich Gallery.
Drawn, Engraved & Published by R. Cockburn, Dulwich.
Lithograph with fine colour, rare. Sheet 280 x 240 (11 x 9½"), mounted on card now separate, with printed label on reverse, with title and artist in old ink mss.
It has been suggested that the girl is Murillo's only daughter, Francisca María (1655-1710), who was born deaf and entered a Dominican convent aged 16. Ralph Cockburn, keeper of the Dulwich Picture Gallery, published a collection of aquatints of popular paintings in the collection. This plate seems to have been issued as a separate print as it is reviewed individually, rather than as part of a set, in the Annals of Fine Arts vol 1. 1817. The review describes Cockburn as 'a painter of watercolours with no small talents, and holds the place of Keeper of the Dulwich Gallery. He has therefore ample time for study, and there would bo no excuse for an indifferent print from his hand, This should be more esteemed as an imitation of a drawing, than a specimen of fine engraving; for it is executed in the soft ground style of etching, mounted and coloured after the manner of Mr. Westall, till scarcely any of the engraving appears'.

[Anon., c.1807]
Pen lithograph, sheet 215 x 305mm (8½ x 12"). Creasing, trimmed.
Early pen lithograph. The new medium allowed artists to draw directly onto a prepared stone, allowing them to make prints which arguably resembled drawings more than any earlier printmaking technique. Unlike many printmaking techniques, lithography required no special training as artists could work directly onto the plate and leave specialist printers to actually make the prints. For this reason many artists who were not trained printmakers (such as Géricault and Delacroix) often worked in lithography.

[Landscape with figures by lake, and rowing boat]
[Anon., c.1810]
Large Pen lithograph, very scarce, sheet 305 x 380mm (12 x 15"). Slight stain spots in centre; two very samll holes at top.
Early pen lithograph. The new medium allowed artists to draw directly onto a prepared stone, allowing them to make prints which arguably resembled drawings more than any earlier printmaking technique. Unlike many printmaking techniques, lithography required no special training as artists could work directly onto the plate and leave specialist printers to actually make the prints. For this reason many artists who were not trained printmakers (such as Géricault and Delacroix) often worked in lithography.

[Little Fatima.]
[Little Fatima.]
[Painted by Frederick, Lord Leighton.] Gerald Robinson.
London Published December 15th 1898 by Arthur Lucas the Proprietor, 31 New Bond Street, W.
Mezzotint, proof signed by the engraver, ltd to 275. 310 x 490mm.
'Little Fatima' has an added interest because of its Orientalism. Leighton first showed an Oriental subject, a `Reminiscence of Algiers' at the Society of British Artists in 1858. Ten years later, in 1868, he made a journey to Egypt and in the autumn of 1873 he worked in Damascus where he made many studies and where he probably gained the inspiration for the present work.
Gerald Philip Robinson (printmaker; 1858 - 1942)Mostly declared pirnts PSA.

Pen lithograph, very scarce; sheet 275 x 385mm (10¾ x 15"). Slight foxing; crease on right.
Early lithograph from the famous painting of the medusa's head (Florence, Uffizi). This print was probably made around the same time that Percy Bysshe Shelley wrote his poem 'On the Medusa of Leonardo da Vinci in the Florentine Gallery'. Like Shelley, the maker of this print probably believed the painting to be by Leonardo. It is now considered to be by an anonymous artist of the Flemish school, c.1620-30.
