Claude Lorraine ETCHINGS John Boydell 1776 (4)-
Claude Lorraine (French, 1600-1682) was a tireless observer of the topography of countryside around his adopted home, Rome Italy. He brought his mastery for observation to luminous and serene pastoral landscapes.
Many of these were translated into prints by engraver John Boydell who kept a shop in Cheapside, London. The four prints offered here were all executed in 1776. Fine crosshatching was used to affectively reproduce the atmosphere of the originals. All four (4) were executed in brown ink.
The prints are untitled, but numbered and dated on each plate:
No. 134, Jan. 1776
No. 152, September 2nd, 1776
No. 157, September 2nd, 1776
No. 178, December 3rd, 1776
Each measures @ 10 x 12 inches. They are framed in modern gold leaf frames to a finished size of 13.5 x 15.5 inches.
Only one has been removed from frame and appears to be in very good, authentic condition.
