[Dull Reading: with portraits of Daniel and Elizabeth Terry]
Etching with very large margins, platemark 140 x 175mm (5½ x 7").
Portraits of the actor Daniel Terry and his artist wife Elizabeth, seated in a dark room. Etched by the Scottish painter and etcher Andrew Geddes (1783-1844). The Oxford DNB states that 'as an etcher Geddes ranks higher than as a painter; his plates may be regarded as among the very earliest examples in modern British art of the brilliancy, concentration, and spirited selection of line proper to a ‘painter's-etching’'. This plate was one of ten he published himself in 1826.
