Set of Six 19th Century Pen and Ink Drawing - Portraits of Noblemen

Item Sold


An interesting set of six pen and ink drawings where the nib of the artist's pen has scratched into the surface of the page. The six drawings are on individual sheets of wove paper laid down on backing paper. Four are on one page and two are on another. The individual drawing measures approximately (10 x 8 cm) each. Each is inscribed with the sitter's name -Markham Archbishop of York, Bishop of Peterborough, Right Honourable William Pitt etc. Unsigned.


Condition is typical for pictures of this age including some discolouration and fading of the ink.


11.5 x 9.5cm (4.5" x 3.7")

Collection Information

These drawings and watercolours form a diverse collection. They were found in an album which we think was assembled in the 1940's by a collector. There is no real theme to the album. Almost everything dates from the 19th century. Few are signed. Several items are attributed, presumably by the person who assembled the album. We have no further provenance. We saw no reason to keep the album intact and have tried to assort the contents into rational groups as appropriate. Some of the items are of very high quality indeed. Collection Code 18Za
