Plates from the various tours of Dr. Syntax

By Thomas Rowlandson
London, 1812 -1821

These tours chronicle the various escapades of the fictional 19th-century English clergyman, Dr. Syntax. The animated drawing and wonderful facial expressions make them excellent examples of Rowlandson's parodic work from the great age of English caricature. These tours were a satire on William Gilpin's series of picturesque journeys to different parts of England with emphasis on landscape pictures and flattering prose into which Rowlandson inserted his stumbling parson and a wide range of landscape and decorative arts portrayal.

Passeri Vase Engraving

Giovanni Battista Passeri was born in Rome and came to be the antiquary to the Grand Duke of Tuscany. He wrote letters touting Etruscan culture which he found far superior to his own; this belief was the inspiration for this collection of vase engravings. He studied under Domenichino a famous Italian Baroque painter. The engravings are on high quality chain lined paper with old hand coloring.
