Framed Grand antique Bacchanalian Vase. H.Moses engraving c1814.

by Moses, Henry

Fine hand-coloured antique print. A grand antique Vase from the collection of the Earl of Warwick. Original copperplate-engraving c1811 by Henry Moses for A Collection of Antique Vases, Altars, Paterea, Tripods, Candelabra and Sarcophagi, from various Museums and Collections, published in London in 1814 by J. Taylor, No 39 High Holborn, and printed by Richard and Arthur Taylor of Shoe Lane.

Moses considered that “The study of the unrivalled works of the ancients is essential to the establishment of good taste and correct judgement, and has laid the foundation of those excellencies which have given celebrity to all the distinguished artists of modern times. Many of the most admirable productions of antiquity are however inaccessible to students, whose limited income will not allow of their travelling to see them;… I therefore conceived that I should perform an acceptable service to the lovers and professors of the Arts, if I were to select from various Museums, Collections, and Cabinets, such of the most esteemed monuments of ancient times, as would tend to improve the judgement, and refine the taste of the Student.”

This wonderful antique print of an grand Bacchanalian marble vase is mounted with a hand-painted 'antique white' conservation ragmat board and framed with a beautiful hand-made gilded ebony 'tortoise-shell' frame.
