An early 19th C. satirical etching of John Bull kneeling before William Pitt
Located in Alamo, CA
This is an early 19th century hand-colored satirical caricature etching entitled "John Bull and his favourite statue of bronze!!", published and possibly engraved in London in 1802 by William Holland (1757-1815). It depicts John Bull (symbolizing the English people) kneeling in profile before William Pitt, who was prime minister of England at the time, and for whom the American city of Pittsburgh was named. Pitt is standing, pretending to be a statue. A rectangular pedestal beneath Pitt is inscribed: "Erected by Voluntary Subscription!" Pitt's body seems elongated, reminding that this a caricature. He is standing, looking to the left, his aristocratic nose held high in apparent arrogance and his hands are deep in his pockets, with his hat under his right arm. John Bull, is dressed simply for the time. He is on in his knees in a gesture of supplication, as if in prayer or begging for some action from a deity. He is holding his hat in both hands, looking up at Pitt. Trees and bushes are seen in the background. A caption showing John Bull's words in the upper left ironically reads: "O Wonderful Man! - how I revere thy sublime resemblance. - what obligations I am under to thee! what happy times thou hast brought about! Bread for nothing! Beef 3d per pound! Porter 3d per pot! a Goose 2 shillings! and a fat Turkey 3s.6d!! - whit every thing else cheap in proportion! - besides the wonderful decrease of Taxes!! - O Dear - O Dear I hardly know how to express myself, I feel so enraptured. - O that fine brass countenance how it shines with conscious Integrity!" The engraving is presented in a gold-colored wood frame and a tan-colored mat, with curved upper corners. The frame measures 18" high, 13.13" wide and 0.5" deep. The framing and mounting utilizes acid-free archival materials and it is glazed with UV conservation clear glass. There are a few faint areas of discoloration and spotting and an apparent short barely visible crease in the lower right corner of the inscription area. The print is otherwise in very good condition. William Holland was printmaker as well as a prominent dealer of satirical prints in London in late 18th and early 19th century. He carried works by the best known satirists of the time: Gillray, Rowlandson, Newton and Woodward, as well as his own creations. Holland along with the other prominent print-sellers of the time, Hannah Humphrey and Samuel Fores, were responsible for promoting the golden age of British caricature...

Set of Two 18th Century Engravings from William Hogarth's "Analysis of Beauty"
By William Hogarth
Located in Alamo, CA
The two plates in this set were created utilizing both engraving and etching techniques by William Hogarth in 1753, originally as illustrations of his book on aesthetics, entitled "Analysis of Beauty". Due to their popularity, these plates were later published separately. The publication line in the lower right reads: "Designed, Engraved, and Publish'd by Wm. Hogarth, March 5th 1753, according to Act of Parliament." Hogarth's original copper plates were refurbished where needed by James Heath and engravings were republished in London in 1822 by Braddock, Cradock & Joy. This was the last time Hogarth's copper plates were used for printing. Most were melted during World War I for the construction of bombs. These large folio sized "Analysis of Beauty" engravings are presented in antiqued gold-colored frames with double mats; the outer silk mats are light brown-colored and the inner mats are dark brown. Each frame measures 27.38" x 31.25" x 1.13". There is one tiny spot in the right margin of plate 1 and another in the lower margin; the latter could be from the printing process. The prints are otherwise in excellent condition. The "Analysis of Beauty" series is in the collection of many major museums, including: The British Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Tate Museum, The Chicago Art Institute and The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. The first engraving (Plate 1) depicts a courtyard of statues which is filled with some of the most famous works of classical sculpture. The most important sculptures are surrounded by less impressive works. The Medicean Venus (#13) is in the center with a statue of Julius Caesar (#19) to the right, elevated on a pulley with a short, overdressed Brutus stands over the falling Caesar. The Apollo Belvedere (#12) is next. A judge stands to the right with his foot on a cherub (#16). Another crying cherub holds a gallows and wipes his tears with the judge's robe. A sphinx (#21) and the drunken Silenus (#107) are below the Venus. Michaelangelo's torso (#54) and a statue of Antonius (#6) are seen in the foreground. The Farnese Hercules (#3) and a bust of another Hercules (#4) under two statuettes of Isis are also included in the scene. The key to these objects is included in the form of a serpentine line winding around a cone (#26), Hogarth's "Line of Beauty". For Hogarth the winding line is an essential element of beauty in art. Hogarth's theory of beauty is communicated in this plate. Plate 2 is thought to represent the Wanstead Assembly, with the Earl of Tynley and his household. It is an adaptation of a scene in the Happy Marriage series, which complements Hogarth's Marriage à la Mode...

18th C. Portrait of a Knight in Henry VIII's Court after 16th C. Holbein Drawing
By Hans Holbein
Located in Alamo, CA
This portrait of a nobleman in King Henry VIII's court entitled "N. Poines, Knight" is an etching and stipple engraving, printed in color on light pink-colored paper with hand-coloring in 1795. It is from "The Book of Imitations of Original Drawings by Hans Holbein in the Collection of His Majesty" by Francesco Bartollozzi (1728–1815), after a drawing by Hans Holbein the Younger (1497/8 - 1543) in the 16th century. It was published in London by John Chamberlaine in 1797. This is a bust length portrait of a noble man (Nicholas Poines (or Poins), who is facing to the left. He is bearded and is wearing a feathered cap and an ornate shirt. Bartolozzi's engraved portrait is after a drawing by Hans Holbein the Younger (1497-1543), the famous artist in the court of Henry VIII. The inscription below the image reads "In his Majesty's Collection". "Published as the Act directs April 6, 1795 by I. Chamberlaine". Below the image on the left it reads: "From the original drawing by Hans Holbein". Below the image on the right it reads: "Engraved by F Bartolozzi RA Historical Engraver to His Majesty". The engraving is presented in an ornate beaded black frame with a gold inner trim and a light peach-colored mat. It is glazed with UV conservation glass. The frame measures "22.25 high, 17" wide and 1.25" deep. There are a few tiny spots, but the print is otherwise in excellent condition. There is a small ding in the the upper right. The original text from the 18th century publication is included in a sleeve on the back of the frame. There are three additional framed Bartolozzi engraved portraits from Holbein drawings that are available on 1stdibs. They are framed and matted identically to this one, other than some differences in frame size. These include portraits of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII's son Edward, who succeeded Henry as King and himself was succeeded by Queen Elizabeth I, and M. Souch. These would make for an attractive and interesting display grouping. A discount is available for the purchase of one or more of these portraits, depending on the number.

Femme a la toilette - Symbolist Oil, Figures in Interior by Edmond Aman-Jean
By Edmond Aman-Jean
Located in Marlow, Buckinghamshire
Large signed and dated figurative oil on canvas by French symbolist painter Edmond Francois Aman-Jean. The piece depicts a seated a beautiful young woman wearing a blue floral dressing gown having her long brunette hair brushed by her maid wearing her black uniform with white apron. Signature: Signed and dated 1916 upper left Dimensions: Framed: 38"x33" Unframed: 29"x24" Provenance: Private UK collection Edmond Aman-Jean spent his early childhood in St-Amand, where his father ran an inland water transport company. Both his parents died before he was ten years old, and he went to live with his uncle in Paris. After a classical education at a Jesuit school, he started working at the studio of the sculptor Justin Lequien, where George Seurat was a fellow pupil. In 1878, with Seurat, he enrolled at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, studying under Henri Lehmann, who also taught Pissarro. There, Aman-Jean, Ernest Laurent and Seurat realised they had a shared interest in Impressionism and consequently decided to leave the school. The pencil portrait of Aman-Jean by Seurat is a moving testimony to the intensity of his early years. At the Salon of 1881 he discovered Puvis de Chavannes, and from around 1883 he worked with him, assisting on Sacred Grove, which adorns a wall of the main staircase of the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Lyons. He won his first award at the Salon in 1883, and in 1885 he was given a travel scholarship to Rome, where he went with Ernest Laurent and Henri Martin. After joining Stéphane Mallarmé's Cercle des Mardis, he was asked to participate in the Salon de la Rose-Croix in 1892 and 1893. It was around this time that he struck up a friendship with Verlaine that was to endure until his death. He stopped exhibiting at the Salon des Artistes Français, which he considered too conventional, and began exhibiting regularly at the Salon de la Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts, becoming a member in 1893, and chairman of the painting section in 1914, 1921 and 1922. From 1896 to 1897 he went on a long trip to Italy with his wife, staying in Naples and Amalfi. In 1889 he won a silver medal, and in 1900 was awarded a gold medal at the Exposition Universelle. On that occasion he was also made a Chevalier of the Légion d'Honneur (he was later made an Officier, then in 1933 a Commandeur, as well as an Officier de l'Ordre de Léopold de Belgique). From 1899 onwards he often exhibited with the Société des Pastellistes de France. In 1899 he founded the Société Nouvelle de Peintres et Sculpteurs, which exhibited at the Galerie Georges Petit for 14 years. Around the turn of the century he travelled to Munich, Holland, Belgium and England and to Vienna as a guest of the Secession. He also made many trips to Italy. From 1902 onwards he was frequently invited to the USA to produce commissioned portraits of numerous public figures, as well as murals in a number of towns. He was also invited to exhibit there, notably at the Carnegie International in Pittsburgh until 1914, where he was on the judging panel. He even organised an exhibition of French art between 1911 and 1912 which took place in Buffalo, St Louis and Pittsburgh. In 1912 he took part in the new Salon de la Triennale with, among others, Maurice Denis and Renoir. In 1913 he was appointed curator of the La Fontaine museum in Château-Thierry. Also in 1913 he published his paper on Velazquez, which was an immediate success. His work was interrupted by World War I. For four years he stayed in Château-Thierry, which fell under German occupation, and almost ceased painting altogether. After 1922 he left the Société Nationale and founded the Salon des Tuileries together with Albert Besnard, who became its chairman, with Aman-Jean and Bourdelle as vice-chairmen. He very rarely had solo exhibitions, but exhibited jointly with René Ménard at the Galerie Georges Petit in 1925. In 1936 a major exhibition was held at the Salon des Tuileries in his honour. Since his death he has been represented at collective exhibitions of the works of his era. The Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris held a retrospective of his work in 1970; the Musée de la Chartreuse in Douai and the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Carcassonne hosted the exhibition Dreams of Women, Edmond Aman-Jean in 2003 and 2004. In the 1880s he had produced engravings and lithographs. His lithographs were a big success. He made little effort to distribute his etchings. He was a careful draughtsman, working in charcoal, lithographic pencil, coloured chalk and pastels. He produced decorative compositions, most of them destined for various public buildings in Paris: St Julian the Nurse in 1883, Joan of Arc in 1885, The Park in 1901 for the town hall in Château-Thierry, four panels for the Marsan wing of the Louvre in 1908-1909, and painted The Four Elements for the chemistry lecture theatre at the Sorbonne in 1912, after which the parliament of Chile commissioned four large panels for the parliamentary palace. For a while after his studies at the École des Beaux-Arts, Aman-Jean practised Seurat's technique of divisionism, but he soon reverted to a 'flat' style as he tackled his first few commissions for decorative compositions. During his stay in Naples and Amalfi in 1896 and 1897, the harsher light enabled him to discover more vibrant colours, and he took to using these in moderation during this first period of maturity. Gradually from 1912 onwards his work began to reflect a sensitivity to the intimate charm of Bonnard's work. Today, this intimist part of his output is more appreciated, although it surprised those around him at the time. Works include portraits of women at home: Portrait of Miss S. Poncet, Portrait of Mrs. Juliette Second, and some anonymous young women with dreamy, melancholy demeanours: Confiding Secrets, Waiting and Woman with a Peacock, in which we witness both the supple rigour of his drawing and the colour harmonies, muted again but punctuated with brighter notes, which especially characterise his later work. The critic Roger Marx thought, with respect to these young women, that 'the unfathomable mystery of the eyes and the vague smile suggest the flight of troubled thought', although it is true that art criticism leaned towards psychological explanation at the time. He also depicted numerous nudes, no longer portrayed as allegories, but displaying a healthy sensuality, particularly in his drawings from 1906-1907 onwards, which testify clearly to his interest in femininity.

Oil on canvas. Signed upper left. Framed dimensions are 31 inches high by 27 inches wide. Edmond Aman-Jean spent his early childhood in St-Amand, where his father ran an inland water transport company. Both his parents died before he was ten years old, and he went to live with his uncle in Paris. After a classical education at a Jesuit school, he started working at the studio of the sculptor Justin Lequien, where George Seurat was a fellow pupil. In 1878, with Seurat, he enrolled at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, studying under Henri Lehmann, who also taught Pissarro. There, Aman-Jean, Ernest Laurent and Seurat realised they had a shared interest in Impressionism and consequently decided to leave the school. The pencil portrait of Aman-Jean by Seurat is a moving testimony to the intensity of his early years. At the Salon of 1881 he discovered Puvis de Chavannes, and from around 1883 he worked with him, assisting on Sacred Grove, which adorns a wall of the main staircase of the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Lyons. He won his first award at the Salon in 1883, and in 1885 he was given a travel scholarship to Rome, where he went with Ernest Laurent and Henri Martin. After joining Stéphane Mallarmé's Cercle des Mardis, he was asked to participate in the Salon de la Rose-Croix in 1892 and 1893. It was around this time that he struck up a friendship with Verlaine that was to endure until his death. He stopped exhibiting at the Salon des Artistes Français, which he considered too conventional, and began exhibiting regularly at the Salon de la Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts, becoming a member in 1893, and chairman of the painting section in 1914, 1921 and 1922. From 1896 to 1897 he went on a long trip to Italy with his wife, staying in Naples and Amalfi. In 1889 he won a silver medal, and in 1900 was awarded a gold medal at the Exposition Universelle. On that occasion he was also made a Chevalier of the Légion d'Honneur (he was later made an Officier, then in 1933 a Commandeur, as well as an Officier de l'Ordre de Léopold de Belgique). From 1899 onwards he often exhibited with the Société des Pastellistes de France. In 1899 he founded the Société Nouvelle de Peintres et Sculpteurs, which exhibited at the Galerie Georges Petit for 14 years. Around the turn of the century he travelled to Munich, Holland, Belgium and England and to Vienna as a guest of the Secession. He also made many trips to Italy. From 1902 onwards he was frequently invited to the USA to produce commissioned portraits of numerous public figures, as well as murals in a number of towns. He was also invited to exhibit there, notably at the Carnegie International in Pittsburgh until 1914, where he was on the judging panel. He even organised an exhibition of French art between 1911 and 1912 which took place in Buffalo, St Louis and Pittsburgh. In 1912 he took part in the new Salon de la Triennale with, among others, Maurice Denis and Renoir. In 1913 he was appointed curator of the La Fontaine museum in Château-Thierry. Also in 1913 he published his paper on Velazquez, which was an immediate success. His work was interrupted by World War I. For four years he stayed in Château-Thierry, which fell under German occupation, and almost ceased painting altogether. After 1922 he left the Société Nationale and founded the Salon des Tuileries together with Albert Besnard, who became its chairman, with Aman-Jean and Bourdelle as vice-chairmen. He very rarely had solo exhibitions, but exhibited jointly with René Ménard at the Galerie Georges Petit in 1925. In 1936 a major exhibition was held at the Salon des Tuileries in his honour. Since his death he has been represented at collective exhibitions of the works of his era. The Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris held a retrospective of his work in 1970; the Musée de la Chartreuse in Douai and the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Carcassonne hosted the exhibition Dreams of Women, Edmond Aman-Jean in 2003 and 2004. In the 1880s he had produced engravings and lithographs. His lithographs were a big success. He made little effort to distribute his etchings. He was a careful draughtsman, working in charcoal, lithographic pencil, coloured chalk and pastels. He produced decorative compositions, most of them destined for various public buildings in Paris: St Julian the Nurse in 1883, Joan of Arc in 1885, The Park in 1901 for the town hall in Château-Thierry, four panels for the Marsan wing of the Louvre in 1908-1909, and painted The Four Elements for the chemistry lecture theatre at the Sorbonne in 1912, after which the parliament of Chile commissioned four large panels for the parliamentary palace. For a while after his studies at the École des Beaux-Arts, Aman-Jean practised Seurat's technique of divisionism, but he soon reverted to a 'flat' style as he tackled his first few commissions for decorative compositions. During his stay in Naples and Amalfi in 1896 and 1897, the harsher light enabled him to discover more vibrant colours, and he took to using these in moderation during this first period of maturity. Gradually from 1912 onwards his work began to reflect a sensitivity to the intimate charm of Bonnard's work. Today, this intimist part of his output is more appreciated, although it surprised those around him at the time. Works include portraits of women at home: Portrait of Miss S. Poncet, Portrait of Mrs. Juliette Second, and some anonymous young women with dreamy, melancholy demeanours: Confiding Secrets, Waiting and Woman with a Peacock, in which we witness both the supple rigour of his drawing and the colour harmonies, muted again but punctuated with brighter notes, which especially characterise his later work. The critic Roger Marx thought, with respect to these young women, that 'the unfathomable mystery of the eyes and the vague smile suggest the flight of troubled thought', although it is true that art criticism leaned towards psychological explanation at the time. He also depicted numerous nudes, no longer portrayed as allegories, but displaying a healthy sensuality, particularly in his drawings from 1906-1907 onwards, which testify clearly to his interest in femininity.
