A still life engraved by Benjamin Green (1739-98) after his brother Amos (1735-1807). Amos Green is best known for painting the landscapes behind George Stubbs' figures in the 'Labourers' and 'Game Keepers' pair, mezzotinted by B.B. Evans in 1790. The BM has a 'modern impression' of this plate, but with the inscription ''A. Green Pinx.t. B. Green fecit. Publish'd by R: Sayer & J: Bennett, No 53, Fleet Street, as the Act directs April 14th, 1779''. It was purchased from the Lennox-Boyd collection, suggesting contemporary printings must be very rare.
See BM 2010,7081.2324.
