The Castle of Ischia.
The Castle of Ischia. From the original Picture in the possession of George Knott Esq.r.
Painted by C. Stanfield R.A. Engraved by E. Goodall. Printed by McQueen.
Art Union of London 1844.
Engraving. 430 x 630mm (17 x 24¾"), large margins with blind stamp of Britannia. A few filled in worm holes, a tear and spotting in margins.
A view of the Aragonese Castle, on an island off Ischia but now linked by a stone causeway. The scene appears to be Napoleonic: in 1799 the island joined the Parthenopean Republic, backed by the French, but the rebellion was put down by the Royal Navy; in 1806 the island was captured by the French, who withstood a British counter-attack, holding it until 1814. The original painting is in the Sunderland Museum and Art Gallery, in the city of the artist's birth.
