[Pair of seascapes]
Two lithographs, rare, each approx 75 x 260mm (3 x 10¼"). Glued to backing sheet.
Two seascapes from a set of 'Marine Studies' by François Louis Thomas Francia (1772-1839), watercolour painter and printmaker. An associate of Thomas Girtin, like many watercolourists of the early 19th century Francia put much of his energy into teaching (his students included R.P. Bonington) and produced drawing manuals. While beginning as a landscape painter after moving from France to England, he increasingly turned to coast and river scenery for subject matter, as here.
