Steel Engraving from 1850s! --- another quality print from Martin2001 --- Mother. Artist: Foley, Engraver: Artlett Published by Virtue Co., London 100 years old art print ... in excellent condition ... reverse side is blank ! Size: Size of the image: 6 x 10; overall print size including margins: 9 x 12 1/2 inches (1 inch = 2,54 cm) Condition: The print is in excellent condition. Printed on heavier wove paper. Green 'border' around the print in the photo is a contrasting background on which the print was photographed, it is not part of the print. 1 inch = 2,54 cm The beautiful group from which the annexed engraving was taken, was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1851, and was one of the most notable objects in that year's collection. It is a matter for regret that the sculptor has of late years abandoned himself almost entirely to portrait and monumental statues, to the neglect of those ideal compositions which in his earlier years seemed so rich in promise. This course may have been partly due to the success of Gibson, who monopolized popular favor in classic and ideal sculpture, to the exclusion of other competitors. Gibson's death left Mr. Foley probably without a rival among English sculptors, but the number of profitable commissions received by him for works in the inferior branch of his art, were too tempting to be sacrificed. In the annexed group, traces are to be discovered of a classic ideal, but toned and softened in accordance with modern taste. The purity of the conception suffers nothing by this process, while the effect, from the peculiar nature of the subject, is greatly enhanced. The grouping and posture of the figures is somewhat original, but in this, also, the course adopted by the artist harmonizes very completely with the spirit of the work. The sturdy animation of the children, and the gentle grace of the recumbent mother at once strike the beholder, while a more critical examination only serves to strenghten favorable impression at first created. The drapery is managed very skillfully, and the modeling of all the figures is admirable. The effect of the whole group is pleasing in the extreme, and the satisfaction it affords is only tempered by the regret that any inducement should have been permitted by Mr. Foley to turn his attention from ideal themes. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy !

TURKEY Trebizond on Black Sea - 1887 Wood Engraving

Full star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star small

This old engraving has substantiated and stimulated a recent interest of mine; this physical thing now hangs in front of my reading chair, and I have found the digital copy of the charming old book from which it was cut (VOYAGES AND TRAVELS OR SCENES IN MANY LANDS VOLUME
de Colange, Leo (Ed.)).
Published by E.W. Walker, Boston, MA (1887))
I recommend enjoying some of the 19th century paintings under "Trabzon in art" in commons.wikipedia., which is where I first discovered this one. In some of these it is the artists viewpoint of serious (not ) peacefulness that I especially enjoy, and now this is substantiated, in front of my reading chair.
