[Lot and his Daughters]
[Lot and his Daughters]
[Robert Robinson after Simon Vouet, c.1690]
Mezzotint, platemark 180 x 160mm (7 x 6¼") very large margins. 19th century impression on wove paper.
Lot and his daughters escaped the burning city of Sodom (seen in the distance here, lower right) to dwell in a mountain cave. His daughters, fearing that they would not be able to have children in any other way, plied their father with wine in an episode depicted by many artists. Mezzotint by painter and engraver Robert Robinson (fl.1674-d.1706). Robinson is chiefly remembered for early mezzotints such as this, while the most notable of his surviving paintings are the panels he painted for a house on St Botolph Street in the City of London, now housed at the Sir John Cass School in Aldgate.
