The Woodman Another Fine Quality Print from Martin2001 Print Specifics: Type of print: Steel engraving - Original antique print Year of printing: not indicated in the print - actual 1856 Original Artist: Schwanthaler (engraved by Roffe) Publisher: George Virtue, London Condition: 1 (1. Excellent - 2. Very good - 3. Good - 4. Fair) Dimensions: 9 x 12 inches, including blank margins (borders) around the image. Paper weight: 1-2 (1. Thick - 2. Heavier - 3. Medium heavy - 4. Slightly heavier - 5. Thin) Reverse side: Blank Notes: Green color around the print in the photo is a contrasting background on which the print was photographed. 1 inch = 2,54 cm. Narrative: It is unnecessary, even nad we space here tor such a purpose, to refer to the multitudinous works of this sculptor. We therefore pass on to notice the work engraved here under the title of the " Woodman," a name which, in the absence of any other, we have given to it. On applying to the Duke of Devonshire, the owner of the group, for its proper title, his Grace favoured us with the following remarks ; โ€”" Schwanthaler never would give a name to the group which I consider his chef-d'oeuvre; when he planned it with me he was contented with calling it ' A Nymph caressed by a Huntsman.' When on his deathbed he gave directions j that he might be carried to look at his work, which was undergoing the completion of some minor details by his workmen, he made his brother write to me to express his complete satisfaction; adding, with a kind of pun upon his name, that I should be in possession of Schwanthaler's Schwaneil-gesang (dying strains)." The group indicates a mere fancy of the sculptor rather than any mythological subject : the axe in the hand of the male figure is an attribute of the woodman's occupationโ€”not of the huntsman's : the female figure, with a kind of lozenge-shaped graving-tool in her hand, and the lute at her side, may possibly symbolise the Arts; but it seems impossible to give a correct definition of the work. The composition is fine and shows genius of a high order: we must admit, however, that it loses much of its beauty and gracefulness in the engraving, the peculiar construction of the group, from what-ever point of sight it is viewed, presenting some obstacle in the way of efficient translation.

TURKEY Trebizond on Black Sea - 1887 Wood Engraving


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.
