A View of the River Thames from Chelsea [two variants after Jean Baptiste Chatelain (1710? - 1771).] [With] [A drawing of the Thames at Chelsea.] (3)
Two etchings tipped into a single folio album leaf. Together with fragment strip from a panorama of Chelsea pasted between, pen & ink with bluish-grey wash. Sheet 485 x 330mm, 19 x 13". Drawing soiled and stained; the two prints lacking margins.
The printed compositions are almost identical, with changes to the figures in the foreground: above, a couple with their backs to the viewer looking out over the water; in the image below in their place a woman guides a child along the top of a wall. Also a pedlar approaches from right, his wares in a tray strapped to his front. This etching is signed 'Chas. White Sct' and is numbered 'No.3' upper right, for 'Six Views of the Thames', Laurie & Whittle. The drawing is in the manner of Joseph Farington (1747 - 1821).
