About

Ehrenbreitstein to Coblenz, No. 2 (after the watercolor by J.M.W. Turner, R.A., 1775-1851.) 1913. Mezzotint. Hardie 95. Image 9 1/2 x 14 3/4; plate 10 7/8 x 15 3/4; sheet 12 x 15 3/4. Edition 50. A fine, glowing proof printed on chine applied to sturdy white wove paper. The arched bridge is in the middle distance; beyond are mountains with a fort on the hill, and a town to the right, with several boats in the foreground. Ruskin analyzed the composition is his books, Elements of Drawing, and gave the work its title. Hardie quotes Short, p. 32: 'Ehrenbreitstein to Coblenz' (the title is Ruskin's, who analyzed the composition in 'Elements of Drawing') is perhaps the finest of the 1842 drawings by Turner. It was Ruskin's at one time, and was on loan from Mr. Tatham, who then owned it, at the Victoria and Albert Museum. The drawing was developed from several sketches, of which my plate (No. 143) records one.' Hardie writes; A few proofs of the etched state were printed. The plate was cut into two parts, and the lower and principal part was presented to the Toronto Art Gallery.
