[Landscape with two figures and distant buildings.]
[British, n.d., c.1794.]
Etching on 'J Larking' watermarked laid paper, sheet 140 x 190mm, 5½ x 7½". Trimmed within plate on three sides.
The composition has chinoiserie elements; the two figures are Chinese in appearance. Numbered '5' 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.
