-Sir Joshua Renolds MEZZOTINT PROOF c1820
This 193 year old Antique Mezzotint Print Proof is by S.W. Reynolds from a painting by Sir Joshua Reynolds in London in c1820.
The Mezzotint (also called "La Maniere Anglaise") is regarded as the noblest of prints and it expesses very fine tone and texture in the monochrome. The printing method is extinct as the difficulty and cost to produce a Mezzo-tint print was very high.
Proof - A proof is an impression of vintage prints pulled prior to the regular, published edition of the prints. A trial or working proof is one taken before the design on the matrix is finished. These proofs are pulled so that the artist can see what work still needs to be done to the matrix
This COPPER ENGRAVING MEZZOTINT is in very good condition with mild age toning and minor foxing in the margins. The size of the image is about 7" x 5" on a page that is 19 " x 13". .
