About this Item: Published by Henry Morland, London, 1806. Colour printed mezzotint. In excellent condition apart from some skillfully mended tears. Image size: 17 3/4 x 23 1/2 inches. A lovely colour printed impression of Ward's idyllic print reflecting the English rural ideal, after a painting by George Morland. The term "warrener" refers to someone adept at catching rabbits in their warrens, which the man in this image has clearly done. Bringing home today's sustenance is one element of rural life that Morland worked so prodigiously to demonstrate to his more sophisticated audience. It was a world that grew increasingly foreign to the urbanized world as the 19th century approached. George Morland was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings. At an early age Morland displayed his artistic genius, he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the mere age of ten. He was a prodigious painter, producing more than 4000 paintings during the entirety of his career, and sometimes painting two or three works in a day. His beautiful idealistic scenes were a favorite source of inspiration for contemporary engravers, and as many as 250 separate engravings were done of his paintings during his lifetime. His brother-in-law, William Ward, engraved a great number of his paintings reproducing in print his endearing paintings of English country life. Ward's engravings after Morland are some of the most beautiful prints of the period; they combine fine technical skill and inspired artistic imagination to create enduring images that speak of the taste and beauty of the age.

About this Item: Published by T. Simpson and Darling & Thompson, London, 1794. Colour printed mezzotint with added hand colour. Image size: 17 3/8 x 21 3/4 inches. Very good condition apart from a mild crease in the lower right of the image. A lovely colour printed impression of this charming print by Ward after the famous genre painter George Morland. Morland pursued his vision of pastoral contentment in many pictures during the 1790's, many of which were superbly engraved by his brother-in-law, William Ward. These took many forms and the emotional idea at the basis of them has lived on into our era. Here, the young couple with four young children share the twilight hour with their pigs, chickens and dog. This end of day re-union of the family was clearly a kind of sacred moment for Morland, a kind of non-sectarian, rural vespers. George Morland was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings. At an early age Morland displayed his artistic genius, he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the mere age of ten. He was a prodigious painter, producing more than 4000 paintings during the entirety of his career, and sometimes painting two or three works in a day.

About this Item: Published by H. Macklin, London, 1803. Mezzotint. In good condition. A fine impression of this beautiful print by Ward after George Morland, the master of genre painting. "The Hard Bargain" was one of the most successful of William Ward's mezzotints of a Morland painting. Morland's extraordinary ability to convey in posture and expression is perfectly transmitted in Ward's print, in which we see the seller of a heifer making conciliatory gestures toward the prospective buyer, who is already half turned to leave and practically snarls at the seller. The atmosphere is tense, and we have the unpleasant sense that the seller is going to accept the minimal offer. George Morland (1763-1804) was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings. At an early age Morland displayed his artistic genius, he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the mere age of ten. He was a prodigious painter, producing more than 4000 paintings during the entirety of his career, and sometimes painting two or three works in a day.

In fair condition with the exception of being trimmed within the plate mark and remargined. Image size: 17 15/16 x 23 9/16 inches. A nice colour printed impression of Ward's idyllic print, a fond reflection of English rural life, after a painting by George Morland. A hunter shows off the hare he has just shot to a shoe repair man, who has a neat little adjunct to the tavern, in which he can sit but not stand up. Another man ties up his horse. It seems to be a moment chosen almost at random in the pleasant life that surrounds the country public house. George Morland was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings.

About this Item: Published by T. Simpson, London, 1793. Mezzotint. Proof before title. In good condition with the exception of being laid down. Skillfully mended tears. A rare proof before title of this fine rural scene after Morland, the master of English genre painting. A wonderful rural genre scene in which love darts out and is acknowledged in an unlikely location, while the horses eat and a fellow worker snoozes. The young couple holds hands and share a long loving gaze beside an open stable door that seems to symbolize unconfined happiness and new possibilities. The whole story is rendered in a simple, understated way, in the which the feelings and implications are latent. There is nothing comic, critical or condescending in the artist's rendition, the theme of which could hardly be more simple or universal. George Morland was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings. At an early age Morland displayed his artistic genius, he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the mere age of ten.

About this Item: Published by John Raphael Smith, London, 1788. Colour printed mezzotint with added hand colour. In good condition. A lovely colour printed impression of this charming print by Ward depicting one of George Morland's famous domestic scenes. Hiring a wet nurse was a common practice in both England and France during the 17th, 18th and early 19th centuries. They were primarily employed by aristocratic women, the theory being that breast feeding spoiled your figure. It had also been observed that breast feeding had a contraceptive effect, and in those days of high infant mortality, a noblewoman was expected to produce many children. Morland's scene demonstrates one of the dangers of these arrangements, as the baby clings to his nurse in fear of the embrace of his fashionable mother. The fashionable older sister is especially well depicted. George Morland was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings. At an early age Morland displayed his artistic genius, he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the mere age of ten. He was a prodigious painter, producing more than 4000 paintings during the entirety of his career, and sometimes painting two or three works in a day. His beautiful idealistic scenes were a favorite source of inspiration for contemporary engravers, and as many as 250 separate engravings were done of his paintings during his lifetime. His brother-in-law, William Ward, engraved a great number of his paintings reproducing in print his endearing paintings of English country life.

About this Item: Published by T. Simpson, London, 1789. Colour printed mezzotint with added hand colour. Image size: 20 x 15 3/4 inches. A fine pair of colour printed stipple engravings by George Morland, the master of English genre painting. George Morland was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings. At an early age Morland displayed his artistic genius, he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the mere age of ten. He was a prodigious painter, producing more than 4000 paintings during the entirety of his career, and sometimes painting two or three works in a day. His beautiful idealistic scenes were a favorite source of inspiration for contemporary engravers, and as many as 250 separate engravings were done of his paintings during his lifetime. His brother-in-law, William Ward, engraved a great number of his paintings reproducing in print his endearing paintings of English country life. Ward's engravings after Morland are some of the most beautiful prints of the period; they combine fine technical skill and inspired artistic imagination to create enduring images that speak of the taste and beauty of the age. The original painting of "The Fruits of early Industry and Economy" is in the Philladelphia Museum of Art, rather appropriately as it reflects the views Benjamin Franklin broadcast in Poor Richard's Alamanac earlier in the 18th century. In fact, Franklin wrote to his grandson Benny Bache in 1780 that those who study hard "live comfortably in good houses", while those who are idle "are poor and dirty and ragged and ignorant and vicious and live in miserable cabins and garrets." (BF Letters 9/25/1780). How views have changed! The comfortably pudgy successful businessman with his decanter of port, black servant in livery and healthy progeny came to be a popular target of contempt, and his idle counterpart as not so much sinning as sinned against by an implacable system that favored the few at the expense of the many.
