About

An original copper plate mezzotint engraving on wove paper after a painting by English artist John Constable (1776-1837) titled "Noon", 1855 (2nd edition). Engraved by English artist David Lucas (1802-1881). Comes from Constable's "Various Subjects of Landscape, Characteristic of English Scenery" portfolio. The production of these mezzotint engravings was spearheaded by Constable. Beginning in 1829, Constable worked closely with David Lucas to produce the mezzotints as a general survey of his work. Printed and published in London, UK. Matted in 100% cotton rag mats from Holland. Matted size: 16.25" x 18.75". Image size: 5.5" x 8.75". A superb impression in excellent condition. John Constable, RA (born, 1776-1837) was an English Romantic painter. Born in Suffolk, he is known principally for his landscape paintings of Dedham Vale, the area surrounding his home—now known as "Constable Country"—which he invested with an intensity of affection. David Lucas (1802–1881) was an English mezzotint engraver, best known for his association with John Constable. Lucas was born in Geddington Chase, Northamptonshire, and became a pupil of Samuel William Reynolds after a chance encounter in 1820. He moved to London as an apprentice, and had produced his own work by 1827. By 1829 Lucas knew John Constable, and worked intensively on engravings for Constable's Various Subjects of Landscape, Characteristic of English Scenery from 1830 to 1832. He continued to produce works for the family after Constable died in 1837. Lucas died on 22 August 1881, in a workhouse in Fulham.
