[15 scenes set against French-style chateaux, gardens, grottos and fountains after Jean Lepautre.]
[Sold by Sam.l Sympson at his Print Shop in Catherine Street Strand] [n.d., c.1730.]
Set of 15 etchings, numbered in top margin in old ink mss, some have 18th century watermark. Each plate c. 220 x 305mm (8¾ x 12"). Paper toned; Pl. 7 with hole in image; Pl. 11 trimmed close to plate top right.
A collection of untitled plates etched by Jean Lepautre (1618-82), bought and republished by Samuel Sympson (fl. 1720-d.1751) in London. Although the focus of the plates is French-style architecture and garden designs, the subjects include at least one biblical subject: plate 1 is the baby Moses being presented to Pharaoh's daughter (BM 1929,0523.15). Probably issued as a guide for garden designers and architects. The BM records an advertisment in 'The Craftsman' (29 May 1732) offering for sale a volume of '164 different designs of the celebrated Master Le Potre', stating that 'The said Mr Sympson having purchased the plates from France, the prints will be sold at a very low rate'. Sympson moved from Catherine Street to Maiden Lane in 1732.

'Evening Quiet': a woman leans against a balustrade, pensively playing with a ring on her finger, a pose reminiscent of Italian Renaissance portraits. We believe this is a pre publication proof as it does not have the Printsellers' Stamp. It comes from a collection of Solvin proofs (Paris) The model for the oil (pained 1893 and now in the Tate, N05176) is belived to be Elizabeth Keene.
