More About this Item


Description: The Currant, Plate 5. George Brookshaw (c. 1751-1823). From Pomona Britannica. London: T. Bensley for the author, published by White, Cochrane and Co., E. Lloyd and W. Lindsell, [1804]-1812 [but plates watermarked 1822]. Aquatints with stipple engraving, printed in colors and finished by hand. 22 3/4 x 18 inches sheet. Characterized by the highest standards of production and artistic quality, the superb illustrations that Brookshaw drew and engraved for the Pomona remain perhaps the most sumptuous and distinctive of the early 19th century. This magnificent and stylistically unique work took Brookshaw nearly ten years to produce. Rivaled only by Dr. Robert Thornton?s Temple of Flora, Brookshaw?s Pomona is considered to be the finest British botanical work from a time when England dominated the field with a very large number of great books. Brookshaw?s fine illustrations make excellent use of the rich, modulated tones that the aquatint process creates.
Artist or Maker: George Brookshaw
Literature: Stipple engraving on paper
