Description:

A Selection from Vues des cotes de France dans l'ocean et dans la Mediterranee. Hand-colored aquatint engravings. Sheet size: 17" x 23 3/4". The marine artist Ambroise-Louis Garneray was born in February, 1783. He received his first lessons in painting and drawing from his father, Jean-Francois, who was a pupil of David. The younger Garneray went to sea at the age of thirteen, and for nearly eighteen years served on battle ships, slavers, whaling vessels and on expeditions to the Caribbean and throughout the Pacific Ocean. Garneray finally returned to Paris in 1814 after spending eight years in England, where he had been detained after being captured at sea. He established himself as a marine painter upon his arrival, and studied engraving under Philibert Louis Debucourt. In 1815 he was admitted to the Salon, and exhibited his first painting, View of the Port of London, in the following year. He continued to exhibit, winning a gold medal in 1819, and later earned the patronage of Louis XVIII, who commissioned him to paint several scenes of naval battles. In 1833, Garneray was appointed director of the Rouen Museum, a post he resigned in 1837 to work on designs for the Sevres porcelain factory. While Garneray's engravings of naval and whaling scenes were extremely popular, even in America, his greatest achievement was a series of views of the principal ports of France, Europe and the United States, supplemented by the elegant prose descriptions of M.E. Jouy, and published in Paris between 1823 and 1834. Inventory#: p540pmat. Bookseller Inventory #
