John Hamilton Mortimer - his life and works

£45.00

Product description

This book is an exhaustive study of the (short) life and works of John Hamilton Mortimer ARA (1740–1779), a British figure and landscape painter and printmaker, known for romantic paintings set in Italy, works depicting conversations, and works from the 1770s portraying war scenes, similar to those of Salvator Rosa. It was produced in a limited edition available only to subscribers to the Walpole Society, and as such, is a rarity.

Our copy is in very good condition, appearing scarcely used. Bound in pale blue cloth with dark blue textured cloth spine, dark blue lettering on the front, and gilt lettering on the spine, it shows almost no signs of its age apart from some very minor staining to the back cover, which is also very slightly creased at the bottom corner. Inside, the binding is firm, all pages clean and bright, and the print style pleasingly clear and easy to read. There are many illustrations - all black-and-white - of the artist's works.
