Benazech inv.t. Gaugain sculp.t.
Pub. April 1788, by Jane White, No 38. Tavistock Street, London.
Scarce stipple. 420 x 470mm (16½ x 18½) very large margins. Repaired tears in margins.
Charles I in confinement at St James's Palace, visited by two of his younger children. The account of Elizabeth (1635-50), found among her possessions when she died of pneumonia aged 14 while still Parliament's prisoner, is the main source for Charles's last days. It suggested that Cromwell intended to make Henry (1640-60) a puppet king. Later, having embraced Protestantism, Henry was released in 1652 and went to Paris to live with his mother; he died of small pox mere months after the Restoration. This plate was published as a pair to a plate of Mary Queen of Scots receiving her death warrant. Later the artist, Charles Benazech (c.1767-1794), was in Paris as the French Revolution erupted. This scene was mirrored in his ''La derniere entrevue de Louis XVI avec sa famille la veille de son execution'', one of a set of four plates of the last days of the French king.

A ghost-like Jesus appearing to the Apostles in an ornate room. After an engraving by Grégoire Huret (1606-70). Adam Friedel (1780- death date unknown) was a Danish artist, printmaker and publisher who, after serving in the Napoleonic wars, voluntarily joined the Greek army at the start of the Greek War of Independence, fashioning himself as Danish nobility. He was exposed by a real noble who proved his backstory to be a lie. After spending a year in Egypt he took refuge in London in 1824 where he opened a lithographer's shop. Between 1825 and 1826 Friedel printed and published, both in Paris and London, twenty-four lithographs with portraits of politicians and prominent military figures of the Greek War of Independence. He had drawn the portraits himself, in most cases from nature, while J. Bouvier coloured and lithographed these images. The series was a success and he was awarded for his contributions to the Greek Struggle for Independence with two decorations. For health reasons he travelled around a lot. He travelled to Smyrna and taught at a Greek school. He stayed at the Ottoman Capital during the Crimean War and painted several portraits of various politicians. In 1865 he asked for a pension for his services to Greece however little is known about what happened to him after that and his place and date of death is unknown.
