Mr. Locke
G. Farington del B. Reading sculp 1779
Engraving, platemark 190 x 140mm (7½ x 5½"), with large margins.
John Locke (1632 - 1704), philosopher. Unlike Hobbes, who saw the sovereign as possessing unlimited authority, Locke did not and considered governments that exceeded their powers as giving its former subjects the right to replace it. Locke's philosophy was immensely influential in the eighteenth century, and his political writings earned him a place in the whig pantheon. With rising discontent in the American colonies his second treatise on government was frequently cited on both sides of the Atlantic. Locke's account of the origins and limits of government has continued to exert a profound influence on American political thought. Engraved after a portrait by Sir Godfrey Kneller (versions in the National Portrait Gallery, London, and Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond).
For an earlier engraving after the same Kneller portrait see ref. 23383.
