A Barouche with Ackermann's Patent Moveable Axles.
A Barouche with Ackermann's Patent Moveable Axles.
Drawn by C. Blunt. Engraved by S. Mita[missing].
Published Jany. 1 1820 at R. Ackermann's, 101 Strand, London.
Hand coloured engraving, sheet 145 x 240mm. 5¾ x 9½". Sheet trimmed.
A barouche was a four-wheeled, shallow carriage with two double seats inside, arranged vis-à-vis, so that the sitters on the front seat faced those on the back seat. It had a soft collapsible half-hood folding like a bellows over the back seat and a high outside box seat in front for the driver. It was used principally for leisure driving in the summer. Numbered 'Plate 3, Vol. IX' upper right, for Rudolph Ackermann's 'Repository of Arts' periodical, published from 1809-1829. The formal title of the publication was "Repository of Arts, Literature, Commerce, Manufactures, Fashions, and Politics", and it discussed and illustrated day to day life, and influenced English taste in fashion, architecture and literature. Ackermann's ingenuity and enterprise were not directed to fine art matters alone. His father had been a coach-builder and harness-maker in Germany and his early years in London were engaged in making designs for many of the principal coach-builders. The preparation of Lord Nelson's funeral car (1805) was entrusted to his skill. Between 1818 and 1820 he was occupied with a patent for movable carriage axles.

Pubd. According to Act March 17 1771 [additional text scratched out].
Etching, 180 x 210mm (7 x 8¼"). Trimmed to platemark; glued to backing sheet; slight staining.
French coaching print with verses below translating as: 'Barbaric English! who with the same blade/ cut off the head of their king and the tails from their horses/ but the genteel French let their king's heads remain/ and also, as you see, the tails of their beasts' (!) Attributed to Henry Bunbury, possibly one of his earliest works. Bunbury was an amateur printmaker who subsequently enjoyed a successful career as a designer for printsellers. 'Prints by Bunbury an his imitators were conspicuously 'polite' and appealed, like novels, 'To the Fashionable World and Polite circles'. Of good family, amply endowed with social skills, a beautiful wife and connections in high society, Bunbury's appeal was not solely aesthetic' and his admirers 'recognized his comic talent, his informed enthusiasm for literature, and his ability to draw a momentary pang with something of the sensitivity with which Sterne could write it' (Clayton).
