Diana and Actaeon, after Italian artist Jacopo Bassano (c.1510-92). The painting, one of Bassano's final works (c.1585-92) is now in the Art Institute of Chicago. As recounted in Ovid's 'Metamorphoses', Acteaon saw Diana, goddess of the hunt, bathing with her nymphs. The furious Diana turned Actaeon into a deer, and here she (on the right) observes Acteaon, as a deer, pursued by the hounds who will finally kill him.

Basan pinx. E. Kirkall.
[n.d., c.1730]
Mezzotint, very scarce; sheet 265 x 340mm (10½ x 13½"). Trimmed inside platemark
Rural subject after Italian artist Jacopo Bassano (1510/18-1592) by Elisha Kirkall (1681/2-1742), one of the most distinctive of British engravers. Kirkall used the mezzotint technique which in the 17th and 18th century was used predominantly for portraits and domestic subjects, and used it to render a range of subjects usually represented in line engravings at the time, including naval and topographical subjects.
