A fine aquatint by William Daniell; one of the earliest depctions of the London Docks in Wapping, which opened in January 1805. William Daniell was a much travelled landscape painter. In 1784 he went to India with his uncle, the artist Thomas Daniell, where he assisted Thomas with his drawing and sketching. By the time they returned to England in 1794, William was not only a proficient draughtsman but had also perfected the art of aquatinting. He was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy in 1807 and a Royal Academician in 1822. He refused the post of draughtsman to an Australian expedition to instead make numerous sketching tours throughout England and Scotland. Daniell is regarded as a superb aquatinter and his best works are thought to be among his Scottish views for ‘Voyage Round Great Britain’. He died in London in 1837.

Drawn and Engraved by W.m Daniell, & Published by him, at No. 9 Cleveland Street, Fitzroy Square, London, Jan.y 1, 1803.
Coloured aquatint. 450 x 790mm (17¾ x 31"). Toning in margins. Very fine.
A wonderful bird's-eye view, looking down on the docks, with the Tower of London and St Paul's Cathedral behind. William Daniell RA (1769-1837) was one of the few artists of the period who was as skilled as an aquatinter as he was a painter. It was common practice to add engraved or etched lines to give shape to the tonal effect of the aquatint; this plate is pure aquatint, with no added lines, not even on the rigging of the boats. The margins have been given a grey wash in imitation of watercolour presentation of the period.

Hand coloured aquatint. Plate 235 x 280mm. 9¼ x 11". Slight staining.
A view of the newly-built West India Docks on the Isle of Dogs in London. Outraged at losses due to theft and delay at London's riverside wharves, Robert Milligan (c. 1746 - 1809) headed a group of powerful businessmen, including the chairman of the West India Merchants of London, George Hibbert, who promoted the creation of a wet dock circled by a high wall. The Docks were constructed in two phases. The two northern-most docks were constructed between 1800 and 1802 (officially opened on 27 August 1802) for the West India Dock Company to a design by leading civil engineer William Jessop (John Rennie was a consultant), and were the first commercial wet docks in London.
