Windsor from Mr Isherwood's Brewhouse in Datchet Lane.
Published by T. Palser, Surry side Westminster Bridge 1812.
Etching and coloured aquatint, sheet 205 x 280mm. 8 x 11". Trimmed to plate. Slightly stained.
Attractive view from Mr Isherwood's Brewhouse of horses pulling wagons loaded with beer barrels, and Windsor Castle beyond. After Paul Sandby (1725 - 1809), watercolourist and printmaker. Born in Nottingham, he came to London in 1745 where he joined his brother Thomas at the Board of Ordnance. He is best remembered for his watercolours and as the first British printmaker to use aquatint systematically. Sandby executed several other versions of this view, varying the disposition of the figures and the dray carts, or adding groups of figures and animals. The British Museum has a Sandby watercolour similar to this view without any figures or animals in the foreground.
