Thomas Cook (1744-1818) after Hogarth - 1796 Engraving, Southwark Fair
DescriptionA fine original 1796 copperplate engraving by the artist Thomas Cook, after the original work by William Hogarth entitled 'Southwark Fair'. The scene depicts the world of theatre spilling out onto the streets. This chaotic London street fair was held off Borough High Street in the area around St George the Martyr, and the square tower of the old church can be seen in the background. Inscribed to the lower edge 'Published April 1st 1796 by G. & J. Robinson, Paternoster Row, London'. Signed in plate. On wove.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and foxing. With various small creases to the wove, and some water damage, mainly to the right side of the work.
