Calm. [&] Storm.
Printed for Robt. Sayer, Printseller in Fleet Street [originally c.1750, these later impressions on 19th century paper].
Pair of etchings on wove paper, 'Calm' with watermark '1822(?)', each 195 x 255mm. 7¾ x 10". 'Calm' with (printers?) crease through title into lower part of image.
Two landscapes, the serene and peaceful 'Calm' (featuring a gentleman reading a book in centre foreground) contrasting with the windswept scene with two pedestrians struggling at left, and a fallen tree at right. Both compositions show buildings across water in distance. First plate numbered '18' upper left. Jean Baptiste Chatelain (French/British, 1710 - 1758) was a topographical draughtsman and printmaker working in London.
