About this Item

A detailed Hand-colored aquatint engraving by William Henry Pyne (1769-1843) from his celebrated book "The History of Royal Residences of Windsor Castle, St. James Palace, Carleton House, Kensington Palace, Hampton Court, Buckingham House and Frogmore.", published in London in 1819. Overll this print measures 11" x 13". William Henry Pyne was an English painter and artist. At an early age, Pyne showed a talent for drawing and painting. After exhibiting at the Royal Academy for a number of years, Pyne’s interest turned to book production, and soon became connected with the London publisher, Ackermann. Pyne’s finest work was a large, expensive volume entitled, The History of the Royal Residences of Windsor Castle, St. James Palace, Carleton House, Kensington Palace, Hampton Court, Buckingham House and Frogmore., which was illustrated with 100 hand-colored aquatint engravings. The book had some success, but like many other great, illustrated books of the time, The History of the Royal Residences brought Pyne severe financial difficulties. As a result, Pyne spent much time in the King’s Bench Prison. Pyne’s work is a remarkable pictorial record of the interior decorations and furnishings of Windsor Castle, showing the castle as it was before the architect Jeffrey Wyatville’s extensive alterations carried out from 1824-1828, St. James’s Palace, Carlton House, a splendid series of the interiors created for the Prince Regent by Holland with Wyatt and Nash as architects, Kensington Palace, Hampton Court, Buckingham House and Frogmore as remodeled by architect James Wyatt. Overall this print is in very good condition with some foxing and staining. Bookseller Inventory # gn1302d
