About This Item

c. 1898. Rare mezzotint print of Samuel Arlent-Edwards' portrait of Izaak Walton, inscribed by the artist. Folio, color mezzotint. Inscribed by Samuel Arlent-Edwards in the lower right corner, "Engraved and printed in color at one printing without retouching Samuel Arlent-Edwards." In very good condition. The print measures 14.75 inches by 12 inches. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Rare. Samuel Arlent Edwards was an English-born artist and book illustrator working in New York City at the turn of the 20th century. Educated at the Kensington Art School and trained in engraving by Appleton, Josey, and Alais of London, he became widely known for his mezzotints printed in color, an art form that had flourished and peaked in 18th-century Britain. Edwards's mezzotints range from reproductions of well-known European paintings by Botticelli, Boucher, and Da Vinci, to British and American portraits. He was meticulous about his work, and often inscribed "Engraved and printed in color at one printing without retouching" on each impression. His plates were issued in limited numbers then destroyed.
