Prints from Sandby's A Collection of One Hundred and Fifty Select Views . . .


Paul Sandby, R.A. From A Collection of One Hundred and Fifty Select Views in England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. London, 1782-3. Ca. 5 1/4 x 7. Engravings by M. A. Rooker, except as noted. Hand coloring. Full margins. Some foxing and discoloration, but overall very good impressions and vibrant color.

A series of beautiful prints of English landscapes and country houses by Paul Sandby, R.A. (1730-1809). Sandby, a painter and draughtsman of great fame, was rightly considered by his contemporaries to be one of the key figures in the development of British art in the second half of the eighteenth century. An especially talented topographical artist, he was singled out by Thomas Gainsborough as "the only Man of Genius...who has employ'd his Pencil that way". [L. Hermann, British Landscape Painting of the 18th Century]

These fresh and lovely views of magnificent English country houses in their landscape settings are excellent examples of Sandby's "genius" as a landscape and architectural artist. He was able to capture vividly the precise architectural and incidental detail, as well as the breathtaking settings, that make these English country seats so special. Wonderful prints from the great period of British landscape and topographical art.

All prints priced at $145 unless noted otherwise.
