About this Item

This is a late 18th century English engraving after an oil painting by William Hogarth [1697-1764]. Arms of the Dutchess (sic!) of Kendal (and Munster; German Countess Ehrengard von der Schulenburg, Princess of Eberstein). Presumed circa 1790. Inscribed: Hogarth invt., A. M. Ireland sculpt. Not examined out of shrink-wrapped matting. Observable print size at least 6.5 x 5.5 inches. Size as matted is 11.5 x 10.5. Over all very clean save for very light toning/foxing along the left side of the left arms bearer. Niemeyer Rare Books provides to following interesting information: "Obviously unmarried and without issue, the lady is said to have been close to George I of Great Britain of the House of Hanover and followed him soon after his accession to the throne (1714), where he endowed her from 1716 on with several titles of nobility. Due to various German specimens, yet indeed also some absurdities, Hogarth seems to have worked the arms still before the deeds of 1716. Trusler not least praises the simplicity and elegance in the attitudes of the two young lateral arms bearers." Size: 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 007091
