A rare set of four engravings, each c. 310 x 190mm, 12¼ x 7½. Trimmed, creased.
Four scenes with romantic couples representing the Four Elements after Jacapo Amioni: a gardner presenting a woman with flowers for Earth; a couple removing a bird's nest from a tree for Air; a couple fleeing a burning house for Fire; and a pair of anglers for Water. Jacopo Amigoni (c. 1682-1752), a Venetian painter, lived in England between 1729-39 and attempted to set up a print shop with Joseph Wagner before both returned to Venice. Patronised by Queen Caroline (wife of George II) he is credited with introducing Venetian rococo to British royal portraiture.
