S.J.E. Jones. "Horses Going to a Fair".
Aquatint by W. Fellows. 14 x 17 1/2 (image) plus margins. Probably London, England, circa 1825. Fine condition.
Jones exhibited at the Royal Academy in London from 1820 to about 1845. He humorously placed his own name as the proprietor of the roadside inn and perhaps provided a self-portrait with inclusion of the inn keeper providing a drink to the horseman. The printmaker, Fellows, is listed by Ian Mackenzie in his British Prints as working from late eighteenth century to early nineteenth century. A lovely, early depiction of horses with gentlemanly costume and architecture from the period.
