Untitled 18th century engravings- British History

(Allegorical engravings- Scenes from antiquity- Goddesses- angels- cherubs)

— 4 SHEETS —

Issued 1751, London. Engraved by Grevelot or Grignion.

Charming lot of four related 18th century copper engraved prints.

The image has a near folk-art feel, a style of  image quite unique to this time in history. Utterly unlike anything produced today and of modern aesthetic appeal for this very reason.

Mostly clean & well preserved example, trivial blank margin edge toning which visually testifies to the age and patina. Text on verso of each as issued..

Sheets each measure c. 7″ x 4″.

Printed areas measure c. 6 1/2″ x 3″

[R11358]

Guaranteed authentic – old.
We do not sell modern reprints.
