[Landscape with Trees, Girls Crossing Footbridge.]
W Havell.
[1807]
Rare pen lithograph. Sheet 320 x 230mm (12½ x 9"). Trimmed to image as normal, tipped on album sheet. Staining bottom right.
An early pen lithograph first published in the second issue of 'Specimens of Polyautography' issued in 1807. The first part of 'Specimens' (1803) was the first set of artist's lithographs ever published, showcasing the new medium which allowed artists to make prints arguably resembling drawings more than any earlier technique. Unlike most printmaking techniques, lithography required no special training as artists could work directly onto the plate and leave specialist printers to actually make the prints. For this reason many artists who were not trained printmakers (such as Géricault and Delacroix) often worked in lithography. By William Havell (1782-1857), landscape painter. This print was made in the year that the young artist moved from Reading to London, quickly establishing a reputation for his acute observation of nature. Havell later spent ten years living in China and India (1816-26), drawing many of his later subjects from these experiences.
