[Lord Fairfax from an Original of Cowpers in the Collection of George Scott Esqr.]
[Lord Fairfax from an Original of Cowpers in the Collection of George Scott Esqr.]
Thos. Worlidge Fecit 1755.
Etching, platemark 85 x 65mm (3¼ x 2½"). Good margins; white laid paper.
Portrait of Thomas Fairfax, 3rd Baron Fairfax (1612 - 1671). Perhaps the most accomplished Parliamentarian officer, Fairfax was appointed Lord General of the New Model Army after his victory at Marston Moor, 1644. His decisive string of victories, beginning with the battle of Naseby in 1645, won the Civil War for Parliament. Extremism alarmed him and he refused to serve on the court which tried the King or to lead the army into Scotland in 1650. He retired from public life until 1660, when he supported General Monck's march to London to demand a free parliament and was one of those who went to the Hague to greet Charles II before his Restoration to the throne. By Thomas Worlidge (1700 - 1766), 'the English Rembrandt' and a pupil of Alessandro Maria Grimaldi, whose daughter Arabella he married. Early proof before text added below the image.

Etching with aquatint, sheet 160 x 125mm (6¼ x 5"). Trimmed inside platemark.
Interesting posthumous impression of an etching by Thomas Worlidge (1700-66). Worlidge etched this plate in 1751 without aquatint, which had not been used in England at the time. After Worlidge's death, his plates were sold at auction and Robert Pollard published this impression in 1790, presumably after having the aquatint added to capitalise on the widespread use of the medium in the late 18th century. Born in Peterborough, Worlidge was a pupil of Alessandro Maria Grimaldi, whose daughter Arabella he married. His widow issued his plates in 1766 and 1767 afater his death with the numbers in the corners, but very few impressions were issued and sold by Worlidge during his lifetime.

William Kenrick, AEt. 36.
T. Worlidge fc.t.
[n.d., c.1756]
Etching, platemark 185 x 140mm (7 x 5½"). Thread margins; good impression
Portrait of William Kenrick (1729/30-1779), writer and translator, portrayed at the age of 36. Volumes of Locke, Shakespeare and Milton by his side, and symbols of the arts and sciences, indicate his profession and interests. This portrait was made at a time when Kenrick was spending much of his time on the continent, but before his best-known achievements, which include translations of Rousseau and Voltaire and theatrical works. He also courted controversy, accusing Garrick of a homosexual relationship with Isaac Bickerstaff in his 1772 pamphlet 'Love in the Suds' (which went through five editions before Kenrick suppressed the work and apologized, fearing imprisonment for libel). Less successfully, he sought to goad Dr Johnson through critical reviews and accusations (against which Johnson maintained a stoic silence). By Thomas Worlidge (1700-66), 'the English Rembrandt'.
