UnknownSt Johns Smiths Square - Original Drawing in Reverse for Print

£ 2,450.00

Pen, ink and watercolour drawing of St Johns Smiths Square circa 1750. This is likely to be the original work from which the famous and much published print was made; it is the mirror image of the published print and shows evidence of frequent microscopic pin pricks which were probably used to originate the engraving. Figures in the foreground also match those in the ultimate print.
