About this Item

Aquatint printed in colours on laid paper. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, minor foxing, and mild rippling. Four registration marks visible in the margins. Trimmed on all sides. A charming, beautifully coloured view of Blackfriars Bridge and Watt's Shot Tower on the Lambeth bank of the River Thames from a small series of prints of London and its environs. Laurent Guyot was an extremely prolific draughtsman and engraver whose topographical, allegorical, and genre scenes enjoyed tremendous success and are still highly admired today. A pupil of Jean Baptiste Tilliard, he exhibited his skillfully rendered views of Rome after Pernet and Hubert Robert at the Salons of 1793 and 1795 respectively. Having firmly established a widespread reputation as an accomplished engraver, he produced numerous plates, many of them printed in colours, after many of the celebrated artists of his daysuch as Belanger, Mallet, and Vernet. He also exhibited at the Salon de l'Elysee in 1797. Cf. Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs , Vol. 6, p. 619. Bookseller Inventory # 13439
