PUBLISHER: Colnaghi & Co Printsellers, 132 Pall Mall, London
METHOD: Aquatint, with some etched or engraved lines
IMAGE SIZE: 20.5 by 11.5 inches image area
NOTES: A view of Frogmore Lodge near Windsor Castle, Royal interest. This house still stands in the grounds of Windsor Castle, and has been occupied over the years by various ‘Royals’. It was first purchased by Queen Charlotte to use as a retreat in the 1790s. The print is interesting as showing the open colonnade added to the original house by Wyatt for the Queen, but the house was further extended with the addition of semicircular bays. The Royal Mausoleum is located at Frogmore. The print is recorded as being painted by “Ricardus Cooper”. Mallalieu records Cooper as having been the drawing master at Eton and as having taught Princess Charlotte drawing skills, hence the Royal/Windsor connection. Waterhouse records Cooper with the comment “and, apparently one who occasionally painted bad landscapes in oil.” Of interest to note, this view was published by Colnaghi, the well known London art dealers, still in business today, from “the Original Drawing in Her Majesty’s Collection”.
CONDITION: Good, trimmed within platemark, contemporary colour, one or two light creases. The print seems to have been treated with a light glaze, leaving it slightly dirty.
