Gate under Queen Elizabeth's Picture Gallery
Published by T. Palser, Surry side Westminster Bridge, 1812.
Etching and aquatint. Sheet 205 x 280mm (8 x 11"). Trimmed inside platemark.
View at Windsor castle by Paul Sandby. Oppé identifies the print as one of a group which he describes as 'outline etchings of approximately the same size which formed part of a small Windsor set of 1780, some from drawings of 1769.' This is a later restrike, with aquatint added, published by Thomas Palser in 1812. The publication of many of Sandby's etchings is obscured by the fact that many were not published or only issued privately, and that many plates were acquired by commercial publishers such as Sayer and Boydell and issued as single plates or in groups. There is an almost identical drawing at Windsor (no. 14536; Oppé 14) while Robertson refers to another related drawing at the Yale Centre for British Art (B1975.4.1846), dated 1767.
