J. Worsdale pinx / J Faber Fecit [1729]
Mezzotint, platemark 190 x 150mm (7½ x 6"). Small margins. Rare.
Henry Carey (1687-1743), poet and songwriter. Allegedly the illegitimate son of the George Savile, marquess of Halifax, Carey is best known for his satires and comedies for the theatre today. He also taught music and published poetry. The great music historian Charles Burney wrote of him: 'Honest Harry Carey invented many very pleasing and natural melodies, which neither obscured the sense of the words, nor required much science to hear'. A defender of indigenous musical traditions, Carey attacked Italian opera, and sometimes paticular continental performers, in satires like 'Faustina, or, The Roman Songstress'. Despite the great success of works such as 'the Dragon of Wantley' (1737), whose popularity eclipsed even 'The Beggar's Opera', Carey committed suicide soon after the death of his son in 1743.

Rare mezzotint, 18th century watermark; sheet 375 x 275mm (14¾ x 10¾"). Trimmed losing publication line. Tipped into album paper at sides. Repairs at bottom.
Three-quarter length of a woman leaning on the rim of a fountain. She wears a dress and her cloak is hung across her with a string of pearls. John Faber the Younger (c.1684-1756) also produced a larger, more detailed engraving after the painting, in reverse: see CS 87. Chaloner Smith suggests Jane Collier could be the sitter, adding that Bromley's identification of the lady as a courtesan, also known as Miss Stewart, has not been corroborated. Jane Collier (1714 March 1755) was an English novelist best known for her book An Essay on the Art of Ingeniously Tormenting (1753). She also collaborated with Sarah Fielding on her only other surviving work The Cry (1754). Or as identified by the British Museum the first wife of the Honble James Murray, son of the 4th Lord Elibank (q.v.) who died at Beauport (1779).
