G. Hayter Invt. Delt. et Aqua Fortis fecit 1825.
Etching on india, sheet 230 x 310mm (9 x 12¼"). Trimmed to plate. Bit messy on edges.
Etching by Sir George Hayter (1792-1871), notable English painter and printmaker, very well known for his portraits and large works involving in some cases several hundred individual portraits. This etching dates from the 1820s, his most innovative and productive period, during which his works included the 'Trial of Queen Caroline in the House of Lords in 1820' (exh. 1823) and 'Trial of William, Lord Russell, in the Old Bailey in 1683' (1825). Hayter spent the later 1820s in Italy and France before returning to England, where Queen Victoria appointed him Principal Painter in Ordinary and also appointed him a knighthood.

Copper engraving, 345 x 380mm. 13¼ x 15". Uncut sheet.
The Queen of Sheba's visit to King Solomon of Israel, who she visited after hearing of his great wisdom, as described in the Book of 1 Kings in the Bible. Engraved after the painting of 1650 by Eustache Le Sueur (Paris 1616-55), now in the Barber Institute of Fine Arts, Birmingham. The scene was one of a pair (with 'The Dream of Solomon') painted by Le Sueur to hang above a fireplace in the Paris mansion of the Countess de Tonnay-Charente. A pupil of Simone Vouet, Le Sueur followed a clasically-inspired course in his works. He is now remembered chiefly for his St. Bruno series painted for Chartreuse (now in the Louvre). Numbered 'No. 31', from "The Most Capital Paintings in England", a series of engravings in five volumes, late 1760s-1786, the first three of which (1769 to 1773) were originally published under the title Sculptura Britannica. These were a critical and financial success for the publisher John Boydell who promoted the interests of both artists, engravers and Patrons establishing a tradition in Britain for collecting prints.

Tobias's Nuptial Night. From the Original Picture, Painted by Eustache le Sueur, In the Collection of the Right Honourable the Earl of Besborough; To whom this Plate is most Humbly Dedicated, by his Lordship's most Obliged, and most Obedient Servant, John Boydell.
Le Sueur pinx.t, R. Earlom delin.t S.F. Ravonet
Published by J. Boydell, Engraver, in Cheapside, London; Jan.y 1.st 1767.
Line engraving, 44 x 54cm. 17¼ x 21¼". Large paper.
Biblical scene, from the painting (now in the Musée Fabre, Montpellier) by Eustache Le Sueur (Paris 1616-55). A pupil of Simone Vouet, Le Sueur followed a clasically-inspired course in his works. He is now remembered chiefly for his St. Bruno series painted for Chartreuse (now in the Louvre). From "The Most Capital Paintings in England", a series of engravings in five volumes, late 1760s-1786, the first three of which (1769 to 1773) were originally published under the title Sculptura Britannica. These were a critical and financial success for the publisher John Boydell who promoted the interests of both artists, engravers and Patrons establishing a tradition in Britain for collecting prints.

[Tyranny, Usury and Hypocrisy fighting Common Sense, Justice and the Word of God.]
[after Peter Flötner.]
[Engraved c.1525, but a 19th century Devschau impression.]
Woodcut. Sheet 175 x 405mm (7 x 16"), on wove paper. Mounted on card.
An allegory on the exploitation of the common man, published as a broadside reaction against the German Peasants' War. The peasantry (the donkey) has kicked out Religious Hypocrisy (the mercenary Roman Church) but is ridden by Tyranny (in armour) and Usury (a Jew skinning it alive). Human Reason (in the seductive hat) is not to be trusted, and holds a blindfold before the donkey's eyes, while Justice is locked away in the stocks. The donkey must suffer on this earth, hoping only in the Word of God and the sword of Divine Justice, to be granted to the poor beast only when it has fallen into the grave at its feet. The woodcut is a copy of one by Peter Flötner (c. 1485-1546), cut to illustrate a text by Hans Sachs and published in Nuremberg by Hans Guldenmund in 1525. This example was probably printed by H.A. von Derschau, who owned the block in the 19th century.
