Richard Earlom (1743-1822) - 1803 Mezzotint, Stormy Seascape
DescriptionA delicate mezzotint by the artist Richard Earlom of a drawing from the Liber Veritatis by Claude Lorrain. Liber Veritatis, meaning Book of Truth in Latin, is a book of drawings recording the completed paintings made by Claude Lorrain, known in English as 'Claude'. Claude was a landscape painter in Rome, who began keeping this record in 1635/6, as he began to be highly successful, and maintained it until his death in 1682. Signed, dated and inscribed in plate with 'no. 29', as shown. On wove.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and foxing, possibly as a result of previous damage from cleaning.
