AN OLD ENGLISH MILL

Etched by Myles Birket Foster

Published by Macmillan, London 1880 in "Etching and Etchers" by Philip Gilbert Hamerton

A finely crafted original 19th century etching of an old watermill in England.

Hamerton used examples from the very finest etchers of the day to illustrate his definitive work on the art form.

The etching is based on Birket Foster's own water colour painting entitled "The Old Watermill". Signed in the plate as BF.

Fine, clean condition, free of repairs or restoration.

A crisp, dark impression printed on robust heavy grade wove paper, blank verso.

Approx. 10" x 7" (250mm x 180mm) printed area only with margins beyond.

Myles Birket Foster (1825-1899) hailed originally from North Shields in Northumberland but spent most of his life in London and Surrey.

He was a highly successful painter of sentimental rustic scenes in water colour and exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy of Arts.

He was commissioned by Cadbury's for their famous chocolate box artwork and was also a book and magazine illustrator of some note.

He turned to etching later in his career and only 6 or 7 were ever completed.
