William Redmore Bigg "Dulce Domum" mezzotint
Medium: mezzotint engraving (engraved by John Jones after the William Redmore Bigg painting). The full title is "Dulce Domum or the Return from School". This magnificent print was published in London in 1790 by the painter himself. The image is 17 1/2 x 24 inches, the plate size is 19 x 24 3/4 and the full sheet measures 22 x 28 inches.
Condition: discoloration and a tear to the margin; old glue remains near the top edge of the sheet; and most notably, several scratches and skinned spots to the surface of the paper. Due to its imperfect condition this rare print is offered at a very attractive price.
