Scene by the sea with figures gathered around tent warming food on a fire, and another figure fishing. Part of a set of landscapes representing the times of day after Joseph Vernet (1714 - 1789), regarded during his lifetime as the leading European landscape and marine painter. Vernet's clientele included German princes and Russian nobles, and from the 1760s to 1780s no collection was deemed complete without examples of his work. His influence is evident in the landscapes of British artists of the following generation such as Richard Wilson and Joseph Wright of Derby.

J. Smith ex [c.1720]
Mezzotint on wove paper, platemark 255 x 230mm (10 x 9") very large margins. Later impression.
Allegory of time pushing away clouds to reveal a female figure with brushes and palette, personifying painting. Mezzotint after Louis Testelin (1615-65), decorative painter none of whose work survives, but who contributed works to decorative schemes at the Palais du Luxembourg, and the château of Fontainebleau. This print is supposed to be based on an etching after Testelin's design by Girard Audran, which illustrated the 'Sentiments des plus habiles peintres' published in 1680 by Testelin's brother Henri.
