Portrait of François-Adrien Boieldieu (1775 - 1834), French composer, mainly of operas, often called "the French Mozart". In 1825, he produced his operatic masterpiece, La dame blanche (revived in the Salle Favart in 1997 and recorded by the conductor Marc Minkowski). Unusual for the time, La dame blanche was based on episodes from two novels by Walter Scott. The libretto by Eugène Scribe is built around the theme of the long-lost child fortunately recognized at a moment of peril. The style of the opera influenced Lucia di Lammermoor, I puritani, and La jolie fille de Perth. La dame blanche was one of the early attempts to introduce the fantastic into opera.

An extremely rare mezzotint, 18th century watermark. 455 x 310mm (18 x 12¼"), with large margins.
A full length portrait of Margaret Cecil (c.1672-1728), whose second marriage was to Richard Jones, 1st Earl of Ranelagh, standing on a balcony with a curtain and an urn on the balustrade. It was issued in 'The Hampton Court Beauties', a series of twelve portraits of the ladies of the court of William and Mary after Sir Godfrey Kneller, plus a frontispiece portrait of the artist. The original 'Beauties' were eight paintings commissioned by Mary II, depicting her attendants (unlike the 'Windsors Beauties', most of whom were the mistresses of Charles II), which still hang in William III's state rooms. The engraved series was expanded to show twelve ladies, including the queen herself. This is an early example, still with Cooper's publication line, before the plate was cut down.
