Etching by landscape painter Thomas Creswick (1811-69), published by the Etching Club in 1857. The Etching Club was the influential printmaking society which Creswick was part of, alongside Samuel Palmer, who is believed to have been influenced by Creswick in his own printmaking. Creswick exhibited prolifically and successfully at the Royal Academy throughout his career (he became an R.A. in 1851) and his etchings 'demonstrate a sure grasp of the technique and conventions of etching (DNB).
