Bouquet Flower Piece

Bouquet Flower Piece

Mezzotint (German: Schabkunst)

Engraver: Richard Earlom (1743-1822)

Painter: Jan van Huysum (1682-1749)

Publisher: John Boydell

Published: London, June 25, 1778

This mezzotint flower piece belongs to the most desired. Its composition is poetic in the 18th century style. The flower bouquet rises from a classical stone vase with putti and a bee decoration. The vase stands on a stone table in a park setting. In the distance on the right: a stone statue of a “fete a champetre". To the left: another decorative bas-relief stone vase with a modest plant. At the bottom of this remarkable flower piece: a bird's nest with eggs.

The mezzotint printing might well be considered the Queen of copper plate printing. Its velvety appearance gives the mezzotint an unequaled softness.Richard Earlom was the undisputed British master of the mezzotint. With Dutch master Jan van Huysum's painting Earlom had, of course, a superb piece of art to show his excellence. The remarkable composition is a pleasure to the eye, so that the joint venture of the two masters arrive at a symbiosis of beauty.

Condition: Print has the usual general age toning. No tears, no cuts.

In general: Much better than Good
