[after John Singleton Copley.]
[n.d., c.1779.]
Mezzotint with etching, proof before letters. 370 x 425mm (14½ x 16¾"). A very fine impression on 18th century watermarked paper. Narrow margins top and bottom. Long crease from top middle diagonally down towards the left. Laid on album paper at edges.
A reversed copy of Copley's painting, 'Watson and the Shark' as engraved by Valentine Green and published in 1779, with the added vignette of Neptune riding a seahorse and the title repeated in French. The scene depicts the shark attack on Sir Brook Watson, 1st Baronet (1735-1807) as a boy that resulted in the loss of his right leg below the knee. This happened when he was swimming alone in Havana harbour, Cuba, in 1749. Watson was a British merchant, soldier, and later Lord Mayor of London. Watson and the artist John Singleton Copley met in 1774: some say they travelled on the same ship from Boston to England, and some that they met in London. Whatever the circumstances of their meeting, Watson commissioned Copley to produce the work, known as Watson and the Shark which was completed in 1778. The painting was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1778 and caused a sensation. Upon Watson wife's death the painting was bequeathed to Christ's hospital which was accepted in 1819, however was purchased by the National Gallery of Art Washington, D.C in 1963.
