Other Images:

Engraving, 298 x 230 mm., Bartsch 538. Fine, early impression on laid paper, the image coming through verso as in the earliest Marcantonio impressions, trimmed within the platemark on the topmost and bottommost engraved lines and outside the image at the sides; a tiny nick at the bottom. This supposed architectural image is made even stranger by the appearance of the two figures in the doorway whose comparative size shows the caryatids to be enormous and the bust on the second tier even more gigantic. One wonders if the artist actually saw something on this scale or if he was enhancing the antique to a monumentality it may never have had. An intriguing print and, apparently, a rare one, as no other impression has been seen at public sale for at least twenty years.

The Reverend J. Burleigh James (Lugt 1425). James was a minister of the Church of England in the mid-nineteenth century but had graduated university as a Master of Arts. He resided at Knowbury Park in Shropshire, England and, though the source of his wealth is apparently unknown, he must obviously have been wealthy because he amassed an enormous collection. It was sold in 1877 at Sotheby’s in three sessions and comprised over 5000 lots (a lot may have been more than one print) ranging from Dürer to Whistler, many of the prints from earlier, famous collections.
