Rare engraving, sheet 350 x 460mm (13¾ x 18"). Trimmed inside platemark. Slight foxing.
Rural landscape with fishermen by a stream and cattle led along a path to the left. Engraved after the Italian landscape painter Francesco Zuccarelli (1702-88), who spent much of the 1750s and 1760s in England (he was a founder member of the Royal Academy). This print was made from a picture in the collection of Joseph Smith., English collector, patron and British Consul in Venice who commissioned several works from Zuccarelli.
