!!! NOTE !!! if the image(s) in the description shows a broken image icon(s), right click on the icon(s) and open in new tab to see the larger image(s). A Nymph Surprised 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: Papworth (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: Our other complaint on behalf of the sculptors still remains in full force, and we fear, will so remain till public opinion forces upon Government the claims of our own artists to its primary consideration, and the wealthy patron of Art shall learn to notice sculpture at least as highly as he now estimates painting. We have seen within the last month a nobleman purchasing a single picture at the cost of 4500, or thereaboutsโ€”a work of which, whatever its merits may be) time in a century or two will in all probability leave little else than the bare canvas. Now this sum would have procured its possessor three, certainly, of the most beautiful sculptures of modern timesโ€”works that, carefully preserved, would endure for ever. We confess ourselves quite unable to comprehend, this prodigal outlay upon one art, and the total indifference to another. These remarks, although not bearing on the subject immediately before us, have arisen out of it. Mr.E. G. Papworth, jun., the sculptor of the statue here engraved, is a young artist, who was fortunate in getting a commission for the work from the late Mr. J. Neeld, M.P., one of the very few of our wealthy countrymen to whom our sculptors have been indebted. But Mr. Papworth'a case is an exception to the general rule, and. is therefore no argument against the foregoing observations. The statue, exhibited this year at the Academy, possesses merits which are an earnest of greater things for the future. The " Surprise" is created by a hawk having fallen at the feet of the nymph with its prey in its talons. 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.
