[Roman statue said to be the Empress Matilda, with child and dolphin]
[Roman statue said to be the Empress Matilda, with child and dolphin]
[by Elisha Kirkall.]
Scarce mezzotint. 365 x 215mm (14¼ x 8½"), with very large margins. Tear at bottom slightly inside platemark; creasing; foxing lower left.
Unusual mezzotint by Elisha Kirkall (1681/2-1742), one of the most distinctive of British engravers. Kirkall used the mezzotint technique which in the 17th and 18th century was used predominantly for portraits and domestic subjects, and used it to render a range of subjects usually represnted in line engravings at the time, including naval and topographical subjects. This print, with its large uninked areas, is an very unusual subject to depict in mezzotint. The British Museum's impression, from the collection of Hans Sloane, has an inscription in Sloane's hand: 'Empress Matilda / The statue is in the Palace at Kensington given by Mr Davenant'.

Volume of military prints designed by Charles Parrocel (1688-1752), twelve of which are etched by J.G. Wille and the remainder by Parrocel himself. The set appears to be made up of prints from two different publications, 'Recueil de 19 Planches Différentes études de Soldats' (etched by Parrocel) and 'Reitres et Lansquenets' (etched by Wille after Parrocel).

He was present at several battles during the War of the Austrian Succession which he intended to depict in a series of pictures for the chateau of Choisy (although he only completed two, now at Versailles).

[Charge!]
R.K.P. 1803.
Pen lithograph, rare; sheet 235 x 325mm (9¼ x 12¾"). Hinged to original aquatint mount (watermarked J. Whatman 1801), platemark 330 x 425mm (13 x 16¾").
One of the twelve pen lithographs from 'Specimens of Polyauthography', the first set of artist's lithographs ever published (by Philipp André in 1803). The new medium allowed artists to draw directly onto a prepared stone, allowing artists to make prints which arguably resembled drawings more than any earlier printmaking technique. Unlike many printmaking techniques, lithography required no special training as artists could work directly onto the plate and leave specialist printers to actually make the prints. For this reason many artists who were not trained printmakers (such as Géricault and Delacroix) often worked in lithography. By Robert Ker Porter (1777-1842), painter, writer and diplomat. Porter made his name painting large military scenes such as 'The Storming of Seringapatam' (ex. 1800, later destroyed in a fire), and the subject of this print reflects the usual subject matter of Porter's work at this time. In 1805 he was invited by Alexander I to paint historical murals for the admiralty in St Petersburg and from 1805-25 spent much of his time in Russia (he married a Russian princess in 1812). Porter published various writings on Russia (illustrated by prints made from his own sketches), and after later serving as British Consul in Venezuela he died and was buried in St Petersburg.
For Porter's Russian sketches, see refs. 34447, 34448 etc; Ex: Collection of the Late Hon. C. Lennox-Boyd.

Raphael d'Urbin pinx.t
London. Printed for John Bowles in Cornhil, & Carington Bowles in St Pauls Church Yard.
Seven mezzotints with very large margins, each platemark approx 260 x 350mm (10¼ x 13¾"). Minor damage to margins but generally good.
Raphael was commissioned by Pope Leo X to design a set of large designs for tapestries to cover the lower walls of the Sistine Chapel. In 1623 the seven cartoons, depicting the Acts of St Peter and St Paul, were brought to England by Charles I. They were long displayed at Hampton Court and various engravings such as these in the 18th century reinforced the reputation of the cartoons as some of the most significant artworks in the country. Since 1865 they have been on loan from the Royal Collection to London's Victoria & Albert Museum, where they are permanently displayed together. The seven engravings are: The Miraculous Draught of Fishes; Christ's Charge to Peter; The Lame Man Healed by Peter & John; The Death of Ananias; Elymas the Sorcerer, Struck with Blindness; Paul and Barnabas at Lystra; and Paul Preaching at Athens.
For the cartoons as displayed at Hampton Court, see ref. 16693; for engravings from the first set made in England, see refs 14715 and 14720. Ex: Collection of The Hon. C. Lennox-Boyd.

Copper engraving, 345 x 380mm. 13¼ x 15". Uncut sheet.
The Queen of Sheba's visit to King Solomon of Israel, who she visited after hearing of his great wisdom, as described in the Book of 1 Kings in the Bible. Engraved after the painting of 1650 by Eustache Le Sueur (Paris 1616-55), now in the Barber Institute of Fine Arts, Birmingham. The scene was one of a pair (with 'The Dream of Solomon') painted by Le Sueur to hang above a fireplace in the Paris mansion of the Countess de Tonnay-Charente. A pupil of Simone Vouet, Le Sueur followed a clasically-inspired course in his works. He is now remembered chiefly for his St. Bruno series painted for Chartreuse (now in the Louvre). Numbered 'No. 31', from "The Most Capital Paintings in England", a series of engravings in five volumes, late 1760s-1786, the first three of which (1769 to 1773) were originally published under the title Sculptura Britannica. These were a critical and financial success for the publisher John Boydell who promoted the interests of both artists, engravers and Patrons establishing a tradition in Britain for collecting prints.
