The Ancient Cart of Sardinia
Lithograph, very rare; printed area 120 x 180mm (4¾ x 7").
Early cart probably seen by the printmaker, Mary Anne Theresa Whitby (1784-1850) when visiting Sardinia in the 1820s. Whitby inherited the country seat of Newlands, Hampshire in 1819, on the death of naval officer Sir William Cornwallis, and established a private press there to print lithographs by herself and others.
