Of Man: Six Monograms by David Scott S.A.
Of Man: Six Monograms by David Scott S.A. The speech of these things trembleth and is moved / Esdras
Edinburgh, Henry Constable: / London, Moon, Boys & Graves: Hamburga, Peithis & Besser: / Leipzig, Ernst Fleisher: 1831.
Set of six interleaved etchings with original wrapper (front only), with large margins, very rare; sheets approx 505 x 425mm (19¾ x 16¾")
Complete set of David Scott's 'Monograms of Man', a series of allegorical scenes with Biblical quotations tracing the life of man, influenced by the etching style of Blake and Flaxman. The six plates (Of Death; Of Life; Of Power; Of Intellect; Of Knowledge; Of Relation) were well-received but a commercial failure when published in 1831. Scott (1806-49) was an Edinburgh-born painter and poet whose work frequently tackled themes of death, terror and the supernatural. His works were frequently met with incomprehension but he did little to make his work accessible. He has subsequently been placed firmly within the tradition of British Romantic painting, with admirers including Dante Gabriel Rossetti, who described him as 'the painter most nearly fulfilling the highest requirement for historic art, both as a thinker and a colourist who has appeared among us from the time of Hogarth to his own'.
