"Orpheus"

Mezzotint (Schabkunst) by Richard Earlom (1743-1822)

After the painting by Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione (1609-1664)

Published by John Boydell. London, dated 1781

Title is misleading as Orpheus, the gifted and blessed singer and musician is shown as a miniature figure, with a horse, small and distant in the badkground, while the foreground is dominated by two grown and one boy-satyrs leaning on or against a sarcophagi. They are surrounded by animals of various kinds, many of whom seem charmed by the sounds Orpeus produces on his flute.

An excellent mezzotint print, velvety in its appearance and in very good condition.

Image in clouding title and dedication: 28 x 37 cm (ca. 11 x 14.5")

Sheet size 44 x 49 cm (ca. 17.3 x 19.3")
