Copper engraving. 240 x 482mm. 9½ x 19". Cut to image and under title, false margins added.
One from a set of very fine engravings published in 1751 as a collection of views showing Kensington Palace & Hampton Court Palace. Highmore, Anthony 1719-1799, draughtsman, was deaf, and resided principally at Canterbury, where he occupied himself with the study of theology. John Tinney, engraver, practised both in line and mezzotint, but with no great ability, during the reign of George II. He was also a printseller, and carried on business at the Golden Lion in Fleet Street, London, where all his own works were published. His mezzotint plates include portraits. He engraved in line a set of ten views of Hampton Court and Kensington Palace, after Anthony Highmore. Tinney is now remembered as the master of the distinguished engravers William Woollett, Anthony Walker, and John Browne. He died in 1761.
