The Wellington Shield   1820

Six original etchings and engravings by Thomas Stothard, R.A.

The complete set of 6 original etchings and engravings made to form Stothard’s most important printed work. All of the impressions are on full, uncut sheets with wide margins around the images on all sides. All are exceptionally fine, strong impressions from the only issue, printed for the artist by McQueen & Co.

No other complete set of Stothard’s Wellington Shield prints, as they were issued, has been offered for sale in modern times.

The largest and most spectacular original etching ever produced by Thomas Stothard,
The Wellington Shield was the culmination of a commission which proved to be the most important of this famous artist’s entire career.


The Pilgrimage to Canterbury sold

The Pilgrimage to Canterbury   1809-17

Etching and engraving by Louis Schiavonetti and James Heath after Thomas Stothard.

Very fine India paper impression with the engraved word ‘Proof’.
First issue lettered proofs of this nature are of far superior quality to the normal lettered print impressions which lack the word 'Proof' and which have been re-printed from the plate up to the present day.
