Sir John Charles Robinson

1824 – 1913

Talavera: the Field of Battle by John Charles Robinson

Talavera: the Field of Battle   1872

  Original etching.
With the artist’s name in the plate.
Ref: Hind 8 iii/iii
S 236 x 310 mm; P 214 x 265 mm; I 175 x 255 mm
Particularly fine impression of the completed etching, carefully wiped to produce impressive tonal range.

The tremendously varied use of cross-hatching on J.C. Robinson’s elaborately worked plates is rarely better displayed than in this animated etching of Talavera.

On fibrous Japan-style paper with margins, as prepared by the artist. Very fine original condition.
