After ALBERT BIERSTADT [1830-1902] American Painter. 'The Rocky Mountains, Lander's Peak' [by Jacob Lutz]. Mountain with with lake and Indian encampment in foreground. Chromolithograph, laid down on backing board, with old mount, a few tiny surface flaws, some very faint spotting in sky, [Published by Thomas McLean, 1869]. 19.25 x 32.25in to mount opening. [ Ref: RGW19436] £6000
*This was the first of Bierstadt's 'Great Pictures' completed in 1863 that brought him fame and fortune. As his rival Frederic Church did, the format for a 'Great Picture' was to produce a large panoramic landscape (here 6 x 10 feet) and exhibit it to a wide public at a one picture touring exhibition, which was accompanied by explanatory brochures and promoted by reproductions. The original painting was purchased by the English railway magnate James McHenry for $25,000. Even though privately owned it was exhibited at McLean's London gallery in 1866. In 1867 Bierstadt took it with 'A Storm in the Rocky Mountains, Mt Rosalie' to Osborne House to show Queen Victoria. They were both exhibited at McLean's in 1868 when the production of this chromolithograph was under way. These prints were sold laid down to emulate paintings. The surface even recreates the cracklure of oil paintings. The announcement of this chromolithograph with its companion was first made in January 1868 but they were not issued until autumn 1869. Accounts of their production vary one suggesting twenty stones were employed and another thirty. The original painting is now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This print is a sumptuous reproduction of one of the finest early paintings to depict the American West. Commenting on these prints which were then being exhibited at Goupil's of New York, the 'Post' newspaper (4 Oct. 1869) wrote 'They are unquestionably the finest examples of chromolithographic art'. The mountain is named after Frederick W. Lander [1821-1862] whose surveying party to the Rocky Mountains Bierstadt joined in 1859, when the artist made the preliminary drawings for this 'Great Picture'. Reference: ANDERSON, N. &FERBER, L.S. 'Albert Bierstadt Art &Enterprise' Exhibition Catalogue. Brooklyn Museum, 1991. This chromolithograph is discussed on pp. 274-275, figure 89, and illustrated in colour, Plate 78 on p. 291.

*This is another of Bierstadt's 'Great Pictures' completed by January 1866, a companion to 'Rocky Mountains, Lander's Peak'. As his rival Frederic Church did, the format for a 'Great Picture' was to produce a large panoramic landscape and exhibit it to a wide public at a one picture touring exhibition, which was accompanied by explanatory brochures and promoted by reproductions.

Commenting on these prints which were then being exhibited at Goupil's of New York, the 'Post' newspaper (4 Oct. 1869) wrote 'They are unquestionably the finest examples of chromolithographic art'. The original painting was purchased by the Englishman Thomas Kennard for $20,000. It is now in Brooklyn Museum. In 1863, Bierstadt visited Colorado, where he made studies for this picture. The mountain is named after Rosalie Osborne Ludlow who Bierstadt married in 1866. In 1869, when the picture was exhibited at the Paris salon Napoleon III awarded Bierstadt the Legion d'Honneur. Reference: ANDERSON, N. &FERBER, L.S. 'Albert Bierstadt Art &Enterprise' Exhibition Catalogue. Brooklyn Museum, 1991.

*In an idlylic pastoral landscape, a seated shepherdess feeds grapes to a shepherd boy, with sheep and goats nearby. The inspiration for this and other similar scenes by Boucher is thought to have derived from a pantomine by his friend Charles Simon Favart entitled 'Les Vendages de Tempe'.

NICOLAS DE BRUYN [1571-1656] Flemish Artist. Pleasures of St Mary Magdalene. Festivities in the garden of a palace, with musicians, dancing, and boats on canals, after David Vinckboons [1576-1629], Engraving, signed on plate by artist and engraver. Laid down, small margins top and bottom, trimmed to image on side margins, faint crease in sky to right of palace, ? [1607]. 430 x 700mm size of sheet. Hollstein 172, Wurzbach 98. Hellerstedt, Kahren Jones 'Gardens of Earthly Delight Sixteenth and Seventeenth Century Netherlandish Gardens' Frick Art Museum, 1986. No. 16. [ Ref: RGW17266] £2850
*The present title was suggested by Larry Silver in 'Peasant Scenes and Landscape The Rise of Pictorial Genres in the Antwerp Art Market' University of Pennsylvania, 2006. Cataloguers have usually used a title like 'Festivities before a Palace' viewing the image as merely one of elegant company making merry, but Kahren Hellerstedt in her 1986 catalogue used the title 'The Dance of Mary Magdalene', identifying the principal female figure dancing in the foreground as that saint. She noticed the similarity of that figure to the depiction of the central group in another engraving of Nicholas de Bruyn after David Vinckboons 'The Feast in the Forest' of 1601. In turn she argues this print was influenced in its composition and execution by Lucas van Leyden's 'The Dance of the Magdalene' published in 1519. Many Dutch and Flemish paintings of this period portray a religious subject via a scene of contemporary life. She also notes that de Bruyn's method of hatching to portray the human form is similar to that employed by van Leyden a hundred years before. The date of 1607 is given by Hollstein, although the print is not dated. The Rijksmuseum dates their impression to 1604. This large and impressive engraving of elegant company in a 'Pleasuance' or pleasure garden of a grand house is of historical importance from a number of points of view. It records the layout of such a garden incorporating topiary hedges, water features, pergolas, statues, and gazebos. There are many groups of musicians, playing different stringed instruments including lutes, viols, viola de gamba, and what appear to be a harpsicord and harp. Trumpeters head the barges. Apart from the central pair, there are other groups of dancers. Picnickers are being served wine in tazze from a jug; nearby large rectangular vessels are in a cooler. The many figures provide information on the costumes of the period.`

*In 1808 December Covent Garden theatre was burnt down. When it was rebuilt and refurnished there were fewer seats in the gallery and more private boxes, and the pit now transformed into the stalls was more expensive. When the theatre re-opened on 18 September 1809 for a performance of Macbeth by Kemble and his company many assembled, but could not gain entry. Throughout the performance the O.P.s ('Old Prices'), protesting about the price rises shouted and hissed, and the magistrates were called to read the Riot Act. These protests continued until December, when Kemble, who had hired boxers to evict unruly O.P.s, repented and reduced the prices and had any legal charges against protesters dropped. The attribution to the Cruikshanks is based on an impression with an autograph note.

After GERARD DOU Dutch Artist [1613-1675]. The Quack Doctor; Le Charlatan by Carl Ernst Hess [1755-1828]. Stipple engraving, with etching and engraving, good margins, Published V. &R. Green, 21 May 1794. 26.5 in x 19in (670 x 485mm) Hollstein 51 (after Dou) Marchesano. No. 21. An early state before the addition of the dedication to the Elector Palatine. [ Ref: RGW17747] £750
*A fine engraving of a celebrated painting now in Boijmans van Beuningen Museum, Rotterdam. The doctor below a parasol outside a house in Leiden offers a phial to a group of onlookers including a woman changing a baby. On his desk is a bleeding bowl, a monkey and a document with a seal no doubt purporting to be a medical diploma. The artist himself is seen leaning out of the window holding his brushes and palette. In the 19th century when it was at Munich, Dou's painting was considered one of twelve most important paintings in the Old Royal Pinakothek. Part of the imprint states 'In Mons.r Pigage's Catalogue of the Dusseldorf Gallery this Subject is No.63'. Valentine and Rupert Green published mezzotints and engravings after paintings in the Dusseldorf Gallery, having secured the privilege trom the elector Carl Theodor in 1789. In 1793, they had exhibited in Spring Gardens, London painted copies of some of the paintings they were going to make engravings of, to encourage subscribers. The cost of producing the engravings on such a large scale and to such high quality proved their undoing and led to bankruptcy, with only twenty-one engravings being printed. Carl Ernst Christoph Hess had come to Dusseldorf in 1777 at the behest of Lambert Krahe, the director of the gallery, who had himself hoped to produce a set of engravings of the gallery's pictures. His stipple engravings were considered in the 19th century to be among the finest of the group. Louis Marchesano, Curator of Prints at the Getty Institute, considers, ''Hess not only translated the contours and details of the various characters and objects that populate the composition but also used a sophisticated graphic vocabulary to capture the quality of light and sense of textures and reality that made the painting so rightly famous'. This impression is dated three years before the British Museum print, a state which has not been previously recorded. It seems natural that this painting would be one of the earliest to be engraved by the Greens as in their 1793 exhibition the Dou had been one of the few paintings to be copied at its full size and the picture had been greeted with popular acclaim.
