"Nr. 1. Return from Market"

Mezzotinto engraving by John Raphael Smith (1751-1812)

Painter: George Morland (1762-1804)

Publisher: I.R. Smith. London, dated 1801

On their way home from selling produce and possibly animals at the market, a farmer's family stops at an inn for refreshments. The inn is obviously owned by a farmer. He shares a beer with his traveller guests while the some stay on the wagon where they are served a refreshment. Donkey also drinks his share of water. And a sow with her piglets is typically searching the ground for edibles. In other words: A typical rustic scene, painted by George Morland. J.R. Smith is a master of mezzotint engraving. In this black and white version we can admire the light and shadow effects he so masterfully commands.

Right margin added. Left margin supported behind. Margins have some very small repaired tears, none of them reaching image. There are some other traces of age and use, none of which are detrimental. We have acknowledged small blemishes by adjusting our price accordingly.

"The Barn Door"

Mzzotinto engraving. Printed in color and hand-finished.

Engraver: William Ward (1766-1826)

Painter: George Morland (1763-1804)

Publisher: T. Simpson. London, dated 1792

Rustic scene, typical for George Morland. albeit he goes slightly into erotic happenings. A farm boy catches and embraces the milk maid from behind. Her welcoming smile is suggesting only flimsy objection as he reaches unscrupulously for her bosom, while the stable help is watching the forward approach of his pal with openly displayed envy. From out the open barn door a cow observes the scene with little emotion, while two donkeys couldn't care less and a sow forages the ground contently.

The print has been mounted on cardboard. Right margin added. The print had obviously been framed and had decorated a wall space somewhere for some time.

By mounting a print on a cardboard it looses some value. Passing time and the fact that this print had been exposed to air and light for long has also diminished its value. Taking this into account we have discounted the value of this print. Since it is a genuine rural Morland scene it is, at this reduced price, a wonderful bargain

"The Cottager's Wealth"

Engraver: George Keating (1762-1842)

Painter: George Morland ( 1763-1804)

Publisher: Morgan & Company. Lodon, dated 1798

One of these extraordinary rustic scene prints which George Morland was so famous for. The farmer's wife and their boy are in the stable feeding three piglets cabbage leaves. The donkey looking on with interest over her shoulder.

Stunning color. Left, right and upper margins have been widened beyond the plate mark. A few minor traces of age and use. None of them disturbing the beautiful impression.

Drawing by: Nicolaas Berghem (Berchem) - (1620-1683)


Claes Janzoon Visscher II. (1586-1652) and Justus Danckerts (1635-1701)

Amsterdam, ca. 1660/70

The first state of this engraving was done by Visscher ca. 1650. In this second state Justus Danckerts obviously gave it finishing touches and engraved his own name in the plate as the artist who executed these finishing touches.

While Visscher and Danckerts both belong to family clans who were cartographers and publishers of maps and atlases in Amsterdam, the scene here is typical of Berghems pastoral scenes he so much liked depicting. Berghem's curriculum is not very well documented. But it seems that he spent time in Italy, an assumption well founded by the landscapes he painted and drew. The possible time period most likely for a journey to Italy is expected to be 1642/43. This would fit the drawing for the etching here offered, when compared with the life periods of the artists signatures.

It's a lovely pastoral scene. Aurora = sunrise = early morning. The departure of a shepherd party. One of them ready to mount his mule, the other fixing the hoof of another mule. Wife, a baby in her arms, watching, a toddler playing, a bigger child helping to load. The herd, cows, sheep a donkey) is still resting, waiting for the call.

A classical Berghem etching, well designed and balanced showing the activities at the break of another work day of shepherd life.

The print has centerfold. It is cut to borderline and mounted on heavy woven paper.

The impression is very good. Due to mounting the print there are some creases along centerfold and in the sky.
Minor repairs and signs of age.
