The Son of Niobe Another Quality Print from Martin2001 Type of print: Steel engraving - Original superb vintage antique print Year of printing: 1852 Artist - Engraver - Publisher: Leeb - Baker - London: Virtue Son, Ivy Lane Condition: Excellent - Very good - Good - Fair. Light uniform age toning of paper. Overall dimensions of print: Including blank margins: 9 x 12 1/2 inches. 1 inch = 2,54 cm. Type of paper: Thick - Heavier - Medium heavy - Slightly heavier - Thin. Reverse side: Blank - With text or pictures. Notes: Green color around the print is just a contrasting background on which the print was photographed, it is not part of the print. Description of the subject depicted in the print: Among the distinguished foreign artists whom The Great Exhibition of last year attracted hither was M. Jean Leeb, an eminent sculptor of Munich: he brought with him a large and varied number of beautiful drawings and designs for Sculptured works of almost every description, and courteously permitted us to select any we might think proper to engrave. His group representing the son of Niobe struck by the arrow of Apollo appeared well adapted by its classic elegance, and we have had it executed on steel. The horse is finely modeled, in the antique style, but from a beautiful Arabian lent to the sculptor, for this study, by the Crown Prince. Both figures exhibit thorough anatomical knowledge with regard to their respective positions, and come together in as perfect harmony and gracefulness of form as the animated, yet different movements of each will admit. The only portion of the entire work which has an unnatural appearance is the termination of the horse's tail; this is brought down to a solid mass, instead of being broken: but the sculptor's object in so modeling it and resting it upon the pedestal, was, doubtless, to give support to the whole. This group is, we believe, at present only modeled in plaster. Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy !

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.
