Mezzotint, very scarce. 440 x 340mm (17¼ x 13¼). Slight scratch bottom right.
François Jean Dominique Arago (1786-1853), French mathematician, astronomer, whose recalculation of the Paris Meridian are commemorated by the 135 Arago medallions set into the ground through Paris. In the 1848 Revolution he joined the Provisional Government, in which he was responsible for abolishing flogging in the French Navy and then succeeded in procuring the abolition of slavery in the French colonies. In May he briefly served as Prime Minister of France, until the collective resignation of the Executive Power Commission in June. When Napoleon III took power in 1851 an oath of allegiance from all its functionaries, was required: Arago sent in his resignation as astronomer at the Bureau des Longitudes rather than take the oath, but Louis-Napoleon refused it and made "an exception in favour of a savant whose works had thrown lustre on France, and whose existence the government would regret to embitter."

Copy after Rubens by the Scottish painter and etcher Andrew Geddes (1783-1844). The Oxford DNB states that 'as an etcher Geddes ranks higher than as a painter; his plates may be regarded as among the very earliest examples in modern British art of the brilliancy, concentration, and spirited selection of line proper to a ‘painter's-etching’'. This plate is one of ten he published in 1826.

A large engraving of the statue of Charles II as a Roman Emperor, carved by Arnold Quellin in partnership with Grinling Gibbons in 1681. It was erected in the Royal Exchange by the Society of Merchant Adventurers of England in 1684, and was destroyed by the fire that razed the Exchange in 1838. The statue met with the king's approval so he took steps to ensure that Gibbons profited: the 'London Gazette' for 15 May 1684 carried an announcement: 'His Majesty, being well satisfied with the performance of Mr Grinling Gibbons in the making his Majesties statue lately set up in the Royal Exchange, hath been pleased to forbid all persons to copy the same in graving, etching or in mezzotinto, without the approbation of the said Mr Gibbons'. This print was advertised for sale in 12 January 1685, published by Dorman Newman; the plate passed to Mortier after Newman's bankruptcy in 1694 and then to John King after Mortier's death c.1728.

The statue of Charles II in the Royal Exchange, after Grinling Gibbons. As the dedication on the pedestal records, this statue of Charles II in the habit of a Roman Emperor with laurel about his head was erected in the Royal Exchange by the Society of Merchant Adventurers of England in 1684. It was destroyed by the fire that razed the Exchange in 1838, though a similar one in bronze is at the Royal Hospital in Chelsea. Vertue (IV 35) records that the stone statue was actually carved by Arnold Quellin, with whom Gibbons had entered into partnership in 1681. This was dissolved in 1683, presumably after the statue had been finished (see Katharine Gibson, in The Royal Exchange, ed.A.Saunders, 1997, pp.151-7). Gibbons obtained a most unusual type of patent to protect his statue. The 'London Gazette' for 15 May 1684 carries an announcement: 'His Majesty, being well satisfied with the performance of Mr Grinling Gibbons in the making his Majesties statue lately set up in the Royal Exchange, hath been pleased to forbid all persons to copy the same in graving, etching or in mezzotinto, without the approbation of the said Mr Gibbons.' Gibbons must have been very much in Charles's favour, for the London Gazette of 10 May 1686 announces an exceptional Royal permission for Gibbons and Parry Walton to hold a sale of pictures in the Banqueting House in Whitehall. This print was advertised in the Observator of 12 January 1685: 'The exact draught of the marble statue of his Majesty in the Royall Exchange so long expected is now (by permission of authority) finished. Curiously engraven by Mr Vandrebanc, and printed on a large sheet of imperiall paper. To be sold by Dorman Newman at the Kings Arms in the Poultry. Price 2s 6d.' Newman was a large-scale book publisher who issued a few prints between 1665 and his bankruptcy in 1694. He also put a notice of this plate in the Term Catalogues for February 1685 and November 1687: in the latter the price was reduced to 1s 6d. From Newman, the plate passed into the hands of David Mortier, a bookseller who sold at the sign of Erasmus Head in the Strand. Mortier died c.1728, and the plate passed to John King in the Poultry, the great reprinter of old plates (an impression published by King is in Crowle XII 49).

Portrait of the artist's niece, Agnes Paul. Etched by the Scottish painter and etcher Andrew Geddes (1783-1844).
