Sir John Constable / David Lucas mezzotint "View on the Orwell near Ipswich"
Sir John Constable / David Lucas mezzotint "View of the Orwell"


Item Code: 1160

This beautiful mezzotint engraving was composed by John Constable and engraved by David Lucas. It is from the much sought-after "English Landscape" series; this impression on cream wove paper is from the Bohn edition of 1855. Image size (not including the platemark) is approximately 5 3/4 x 7 1/4 inches, with full original margins. This piece in excellent condition, without foxing or age-toning.

Constable and Lucas collaborated very closely in the making of these prints-- in fact, Lucas was known as "Constable's Engraver", as the great painter would work with no other.
