Antique Hand Colored Engraving T Allom and Havell

19th Century, hand-colored Engraving, "Lincoln From The Castle," after the original painting by Thomas Allom (1804-1872), engraved by Frederick James Havell (1801-1840). The 4" x 6" image is attractively triple-matted and framed in giltwood, to 12" x 13". Possibly from the book, "The Counties of Chester, Derby, Nottingham, Leicester, Rutland, and Lincoln Illustrated," 1836-1837. Very good condition with age-toning, and very faint, minimal foxing in the margin. $16 US Shipping.

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Thomas Allom was a watercolourist and illustrator, an architect and topographical draughtsman. He practised as an architect mainly in London, notably on the Kensington Park Estate in the 1850s and was a founder member of the Royal Institute of British Architects. Allom was most prolific and successful as a topographical artist during the 1830s and 1840s. His drawings were engraved in travel books on England, Scotland, France, Belgium, Austria, the Near East and China. He travelled extensively for this purpose, including a trip to Turkey and Palestine in 1838.

ABOUT THE ENGRAVER: Frederick James Havell (18011840), third brother to William Havell watercolorist, practised line engraving and mezzotint, and made experiments in photography. The entire Havell family was involved in the arts.
