[Landscape with figure and small building.]
[British, n.d., c.1794.]
Etching on laid paper, sheet 120 x 195mm, 4¾ x 7¾". Trimmed within plate; small tear from left edge.
The composition has an oriental feel; possibly the figure to left with a turban? is making an offering to a shrine. Boulder or possibly large tree root far right. Numbered '2' upper right. From a book of landscape studies etched by William Basnett, who seems to have worked predominantly for Robert Sayer as a reproductive etcher, probably reproducing a French or Continental series.
