John Harris after John Francis Herring
28 x 24 inches
A very decorative set of hand-coloured aquatints by John Harris and Charles Quentery after the paintings by J. F. Herring Senior; published in London in 1857.
Much like the eager anticipation that precedes the launch of a new i-phone in our own age, the Victorians had an insatiable appetite for sporting and marine prints. Sets of hunting prints in particular were highly sought after and this highly decorative set of four produced after Herring's energetic paintings would have caused quite a sensation in the print shops of 1850s London.
