'Windsor New Bridge', hand-coloured lithograph of a watercolour by James Baker Pyne

£270.00


Signed hand-coloured lithograph by James Baker Pyne (1800–1870) of his watercolour 'Windsor New Bridge'. Subsequent framing retains the print's original cut and mount in the contemporary style, as shown.

This is one of a set of thirteen lithographs published by Pyne as Windsor, with its Surrounding Scenery, the Parks, the Thames, Eton College, &c. (London: Thomas McLean, 26, Haymarket; Ackermann & Co., Strand; and J. B. Browne, Royal Library, Windsor, 1840).

It was printed in 1839 using the new process of chromatic lithography ('double tints', using two tint stones) by Ducote, 70 St. Martins-Lane, and sold for the then-princely sum of £6 6/-. (For that price one could rent a furnished house for a week in the West End.)

Images from this series are extremely rare.
