[Three banditti on horseback menacing a crouching figure.]
[Anon., c.1810.]
Pen lithograph, scarce; sheet 270 x 340mm (10½ x 13½"). Staining and mould to edges.
Dramatic early pen lithograph. The new medium allowed artists to draw directly onto a prepared stone, allowing them to make prints which arguably resembled drawings more than any earlier printmaking technique. Unlike many printmaking techniques, lithography required no special training as artists could work directly onto the plate and leave specialist printers to actually make the prints. For this reason many artists who were not trained printmakers (such as Géricault and Delacroix) often worked in lithography.

The Flower Girl.
The Flower Girl. From an Original Picture by Murillo in the Dulwich Gallery.
Drawn, Engraved & Published by R. Cockburn, Dulwich.
Lithograph with fine colour, rare. Sheet 280 x 240 (11 x 9½"), mounted on card now separate, with printed label on reverse, with title and artist in old ink mss.
It has been suggested that the girl is Murillo's only daughter, Francisca María (1655-1710), who was born deaf and entered a Dominican convent aged 16. Ralph Cockburn, keeper of the Dulwich Picture Gallery, published a collection of aquatints of popular paintings in the collection. This plate seems to have been issued as a separate print as it is reviewed individually, rather than as part of a set, in the Annals of Fine Arts vol 1. 1817. The review describes Cockburn as 'a painter of watercolours with no small talents, and holds the place of Keeper of the Dulwich Gallery. He has therefore ample time for study, and there would bo no excuse for an indifferent print from his hand, This should be more esteemed as an imitation of a drawing, than a specimen of fine engraving; for it is executed in the soft ground style of etching, mounted and coloured after the manner of Mr. Westall, till scarcely any of the engraving appears'.

Pen lithograph, very scarce; sheet 275 x 385mm (10¾ x 15"). Slight foxing; crease on right.
Early lithograph from the famous painting of the medusa's head (Florence, Uffizi). This print was probably made around the same time that Percy Bysshe Shelley wrote his poem 'On the Medusa of Leonardo da Vinci in the Florentine Gallery'.
