Edward Pryce Owen
Edward Pryce Owen; 1788-1863, English artist, the only son of Archdeacon Hugh Owen. Schooled at St. John's College, Cambridge, where he graduated with a B.A. After officiating for some time at Park Street Chapel, Grosvenor Square, London, he became vicar of Wellington, and rector of Eyton-upon-the-Wildmoors, Shropshire. While travelling in France and Belgium, Italy, the Levant, Germany, and Switzerland, he made numerous drawings, from which he afterwards produced etchings and pictures in oils. He later lived at Bettws Hall, Montgomeryshire. He died at Cheltenham.
This etching has retained its excellent colouring, bright and unfaded, with superb detail and toning in black ink, the image measuring approximately 30 cms. x 24 cms. (12 x 9½ ins.) within a strong platemark and impression on a wove paper sheet size 35 cms. x 28 cms, (13¾ x 11 ins.)
Signed, titled and dated in the lower margin.
Unframed and unmounted, the condition of the image and sheet is fair with handling marks condusive with age.
