Thomas H. Shepherd. "The Monument", London. c.1840
This is a lively steel-engraved street scene showing the Monument in the City of London. It is hand coloured.

The Monument was designed by Sir Christopher Wren, the architect of St. Paul’s Cathedral, and completed in 1677. It was built to commemorate the Great Fire of London of 1666, and stands on the junction of Fish Street Hill and Monument Street in the City of London.

The son of artist George Shepherd and brother of George Sydney Shepherd, also an artist, Thomas Hosmer Shepherd was a watercolourist most known now for his architectural subjects. He produced many drawings and watercolours of English city scenes which were engraved for publication. His pictures are characterized by lively detail and movement. His life and work are discussed in “Shepherd’s London” by John F. C. Phillips (Cassell 1976).

The condition is good.

This is a genuine antique print, more than 150 years old. It is not a reproduction. Please note that the digital watermarks on the photographs here are NOT on the original print.
