About this Item

Colour printed mezzotint with added hand colour. In good condition with the exception of some expert repairs to plate mark. A beautiful colour mezzotint by William Ward after his brother James's painting James Ward was one of the most noted artists of his day, his individual style and superior skill distinguished him from his contemporaries, and his outstanding work influenced the development of British art. Considered to be one of the most important animal painters of his generation, Ward also produced portraits, landscapes, genre and history paintings. He began his career as an engraver, studying under his brother William, who later went on to engrave many of his paintings. The images produced from the pairing of William and James Ward epitomize the best of English art, their fine technical skill and inspired artistic imagination combine to create enduring pictures that speak of the taste and beauty of the age. The work of James Ward is worthy of history's praise; it influenced the art of Delacroix and Géricault, and changed the face of British painting. C.R. Grundy James Ward p.72, no.108; Beckett, The Life and Work of James Ward p. 211. Bookseller Inventory # 6617
