Peltro William Tomkins; 1759-1840, Engraver and draughtsman. Tomkins entered the Royal Academy schools in 1775, and was taught to engrave by Francesco Bartolozzi. Many of his early works were designed by Angelica Kauffman. Later, he was commissioned to produce stipple engravings after the designs of Robert Smirke, Downman, Bunbury and Brown. Tomkins gave drawing lessons to the daughters of George III, and in 1793, he was appointed historical engraver to Queen Charlotte.

A superb stipple engraving which is bright with original colouring, black ink lines and stipples, the image measuring approximately 30 cms. x 22 cms. (12  x 9 ins.) within a fine but evident platemark and impression.

Printed on a paper sheet measuring 36 cms. x 30 cms. (14 x 12 ins.)
 
Printed beneath the image;


'London, Published Feb  22 1798 by P. Brown No 4 Crown Street, Soho'

Unframed and unmounted, the condition of the image and sheet is fair, with short worm tracks to the right margin not affecting the image, a thinning of the paper and toning to the reverse with edge wear and handling marks condusive with age.
