William Pether after David Teniers - 1764 Mezzotint, Peasants Making Music

Item Sold


A fine mezzotint after the original painting (currently in the National Gallery, London) by David Teniers (1610-1690), sculpted by William Pether (1738-1821). This jolly scene shows a rowdy inn with peasants making music on a lute. The plate is inscribed at the bottom with the original artist's name, the engravers name and the publisher's details. On laid.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration. There is heavy damage caused by perished glue outside the plate lines. There is wear to the ink in the top right quadrant and general scuffs and marks across the surface. There is a faint crease to the lower right hand quadrant. The original plate lines are still in tact. There have been several repairs to the paper at the reverse.
