Mezzotint, harbor view in an evening sun.

Claude Gellée Lorrain (1600-1682) after.

Engraved, mezzotint by Richard Earlom (London 1743-1822).

Edited by John Boydell ca 1774.

Drawing from the famous collection of the duke of Devenshire.

Richard Earlom is one of the very best mezzotint engravers of the 18-19th century. In this time it was the only way to reproduce drawings and paintings as good as the later technic we know as photography.

A mezzotint is an engraving technic which was very labor-intensive work. First the plate was reworked totally and then the nuances and halftones are created. You get this velvet, halftones effect with nearly no lines in the engraving.

The beauty of these prints of Earlom after Claude Gellee Lourrain is that it looks like a washed ink drawing, an aquarel with ink.
Only a small amount of prints is possible.

The light effects in these prints together with the brown, sanguine ink gives the effects that you see in the drawings and paintings of Claude Lorrain.

Printed on end of 18th century laid paper, very good impression with 3 -10 cm margins with a watermark.

Delivered in a museum passepartout 40 x 50 cm
