BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Original antique master print. Our definition of a Master Print is a seperately published print or series of prints, not being an illustrative print to a text. These can both be prints made by old masters (artists) or prints made by others (artists, engravers, etchers) after old masters. Artists and Engravers: Engraved by Ward after a painting by James Ward. This print was published by Messrs. Wards & Co., in 1801.

Biography engraver: William Ward (1762-1826) was an English engraver. During his lifetime he was appointed engraver to the Duke of York, and associate engraver to the Royal Academy. He not only worked closely with George Morland, but also married Morland’s sister Maria.

Biography artist: James Ward (1769-1859) was an English painter and engraver. He was the younger brother of the engraver William Ward. His brother-in-law, George Morland, was a great inspiration in his work, although he later tends more to Rubens. Although he started work as an engraver, his painting has gained him his fame.
