    Plate VIII, Dated 1807,
    (Ref: NY9471-CMA)

    The applied Publication Legion below and center-reads Plate VIII, Painted & Published as the Act Directs by the Author G. Brookshaw 1807.

    This aquatint engraving, with some stipple, was printed in color and finished by hand and depicts three types of cherries- Early-May Cherry, Adam's Crown Cherry & Red-Heart Cherry.

    Dimensions :Frame: 28 inches x 25 inches wide; sight: 17.5" x 13.75"

    No other artist captured the romantic symbolism of fruit as did George Brookshaw. He combined stipple, aquatint, and linear engraving with considerable hand coloring as his medium. The resulting large, sumptuous engravings remove the subjects from the earthly context of the soil and edify them in their most ripened state. In Prideaux's Aquatint Engravings the Pomona Britannica is described as "one of the finest color plate folios in existence."

    Mounted UF-3 Plexiglass. The original invoice which accompanies the print describes the framing as follows, " Engaged in 4-ply #111 Canson with gold bevel, 3/4" tan band and warm dark brown lines on 100% ragboard; framed in gold metal leaf on red clay with leaf corner; with ultraviolet- filtering plexiglass; with moisture barrier and insulation back.

    Dimensions: 26 1/4 inches x 21 1/4 inches x 3/4 inch in depth (66.68 cm high x 53.98 cm wide x 1.91 cm deep)
