[Published by Thomas Palser]
Scarce etching with engraved lettering, sheet 465 x 320mm (18¼ x 16½"). Trimmed close to image on right side. Some time staining. Remnants of some prints glued to the reverse.
Henry Aston Barker (1774-1856), spent months in Constantinople making sketches and studies before his drawings were translated into two paintings produced in collaboration with his father Robert Barker. When the painting was finished it measured 10,000 square feet, and was displayed in the lower circle of Robert Barker’s celebrated ‘Panorama’. This was a purpose-built cylindrical building in the heart of Soho where spectators could enjoy the experience of being enveloped in a massive all-embracing view. Visitors were given a circular orientation key diagram to the panorama painting to identify key signs and locations.

He went to Paris to research for a panorama of the Battle of Waterloo (on display at the same time as St Petersburg') and his sketches were issued as a set of eight etchings by John Burnett. During his lifetime Barker's celebrity opened doors: he met Sir William Hamilton and Admiral Nelson in Naples, and Napoleon Bonaparte on Elba. He married Admiral William Bligh's eldest daughter in 1802.
