About

Etching and drypoint. Schneiderman 133.v/xi. 7 3/4 x 16 3/8 (sheet 9 1/4 x 17 1/2). A rich impression with plate tone printed in black/brown in on antique cream wove paper. Signed in pencil. In this state, according to Schneiderman (p. 273):"With additional etched work: an extra balk of timber has been added to the balk in the right foreground (the tip of which is approx. 135 mm. from the right plate mark and 35 mm. from the bottom); the barges made darker, and there are drypoint touches in the water in front of the stern. The extreme left line of the hoist of the wrecking barge is complete. The faint lines in the area of the sail of the passing ship just to the right of the mizzenmast of the Agamemnon have also disappeared." The etching, one of Haden's largest, was too large to publish in The Portfolio. Subsequently the plate was proved by Haden and printed by the foremost plate printer of the day, Frederick Goulding, and was issued by the artist himself through Colnaghi’s – with immense success. Keppel claimed that the print sold 10,000 copies, though around 500 seems more likely.' Breaking up of the Agamemnon, No 1' is considered by the single most important subject of Sir Francis Seymour Haden’s career,
