Pair of Prints – House of Commons, Royal Exchange. Published 1804.
A pair of hand coloured prints with titles, ‘House of Commons’ and ‘Royal Exchange’, published in August 1804 by Richard Phillips, 71 Saint Pauls Church Yard. Each print is beautifully printed from the press, and contains a descriptive illustration depicting a narrative of everyday people in from the ‘House of Commons’ to the ‘Royal Exchange in England’. It features colour and black ink washes of : red, green, brown and blue. The line work is quite impressive and detailed, with a great direction of space and light to captures an experience. Each print had a mat border and lies under a sheet of glass with a dark wooden frame.
A spectacular pair of prints before the age of photography, it would make a timeless object to those who adore prints, or collect fine objects of sorts for the home.
