Dr. Syntax - "GENTLEMAN'S HOUSE" - Hand-Colored Aquatint- 1819
ANTIQUE AQUATINT PRINT by ROWLANDSON
This 195 year old hand-coloured aquatint print was rescued from the book "DR. SYNTAX LOSING HIS WAY" by William Combe. The origianal prints were by Rowlandson. The book was published by R. Ackerman's Repository of Arts in 1819.
AQUATINT - Like eching, aquatint uses the application of acid to make the marks in the metal plate. Where the engraving technique uses a needle to make lines that print in black (or whatever color ink is used), aquatint uses powdered rosin to create a tonal effect. The rosin is acid resistant and typically adhered to the plate by controlled heating. The tonal variation is controlled by the level of acid exposure over large areas, and thus the image is shaped by large sections at a time.
This aquatint print has an image that is about 7' X 4 1/2" on a page that is 9" x 5 1/2". It is in very good condtion with some minor age toning. It is suitable for framing and would be an excellent gift.
