About

George Brookshaw's (1751-1823) beautiful Black Frontiniac Wine Grape hand-colored aquatint engraving, plate XVII from his "Pomona Brittanica", considered to be the finest British botanical large format treatise of the 19th-century. His engravings were unique for their rich tones and colors, elegant compositions with the fruit seeming to float on a rich mottled background. The print is presented in a gold and burgundy-colored wood frame and a light gray mat. The print is in very good condition. Another Brookshaw engraving from his series of fruit illustrations is available on 1stdibs. It is framed and matted identically to this one. It can be viewed on our 1stdibs storefront by typing Timeless Intaglio in the search field and tapping the drop-down name or by searching for item # LU117324346651. The pair would make for an outstanding attractive display. A discount is available for the purchase of the pair. George Brookshaw (1751-1823) was a respected English painter and illustrator. who began his career as a London cabinet-maker specializing in painted furniture, frequently adorned by flowers. He went on to become a still-life natural history painter. Brookshaw published manuals on techniques of illustrating botanical and bird subjects. His books included "A New Treatise on Flower Painting, or, Every Lady Her Own Drawing Master", published in 1818 and "Pomona Brittanica". Brookshaw's 'Pomona' and Dr. Robert Thornton's 'Temple of Flora' are considered to be the finest British botanical works from the 19th century, the pinnacle of botanical illustrations.
