F.Vivares Delin et Sculp.
Published by F.Vivares Jan 4th 1753. According to Act of Parliament.
Engraving. 410 x 530mm. Slight aging in paper to upper right and right margin.
François Vivares (1709-1782), Landscape-engraver was born at St. Jean-de-Bruel, near Montpellier, France, and brought up at Geneva. At the age of eighteen he came to London, whre he became regarded as an artist of great genius, and is regarded as one of the founders of the school of landscape-engraving in this country. Of his plates, which number about 160, a large proportion of them that are views of important English scenery. He particularly excelled in translating the works from the painter, his engravings are masterpieces of the art. Vivares exhibited engravings with the Incorporated Society of Artists in 1766 and 1768. During the last thirty years of his life he resided in Great Newport Street, where he kept a print-shop. There he died on 28 Nov. 1780, and was buried in Paddington churchyard. Richard Boyle, 3rd Earl of Burlington (1694-1753) the architect and connoisseur had only one heir, Lady Charlotte Boyle. Her marriage to William Cavendish, 4th Duke of Devonshire brought the Earl's estates to the Cavendish family. These included Bolton Abbey in Yorkshire part of which is this landscape of great natural beauty. His timeless vision and passion for design and architecture, are his legacy.

George Villiers, 2nd Duke of Buckingham (1628-1687), statesman and dramatist. The son of James I's favourite, Buckingham fought for the royalist side during the Civil War and was exiled, but he later returned to England and married the daughter of the parliamentarian General Fairfax, in the hope of regaining his lands. At the Restoration he was favoured by Charles II, helped to engineer the downfall of Clarendon and became a member of the Cabal. Famous for his intrigues and immorality, he seduced the Countess of Shrewsbury and killed her husband in a duel in 1668. Described as 'one of the worst men alive', he was eventually dismissed from office in 1674. He wrote a number of witty satirical comedies.

Knaresborough upon the River Nid in the West Riding of the County of York.
W.m Oram del: et pinx.t. E. Rooker Sculp.t.
Published by Act of Parliam.t 1780. London Printed for John Ryall, No 17 Lombard S.t.
Fine & rare engraving. 350 x 460mm (13¾ x 18"), with large margins.
A view across the Nid towards Knaresborough, after painter and architect William Oram (d.1777). This plate has a long history: originally published in 1745, this example has had Ryall's name added; a further edition was issued by Robert Wilkinson in 1801. While as an architect only one building by Oram is known (although he did several smaller jobs on royal residences, including designing and painting the staircase at Buckingham House and repairing the paintings on the staircase at Hampton Court), as a landscape artist Oram's paintings and prints are now seen by some as pre-dating the picturesque theories associated with William Gilpin.
