Mr Jorrock's Fox Hunt 1890 Victorian John Leech Antique Hand-Colored Aquatint

by PetitPoulailler

Here is a wonderfully fun and beautiful hand colored 1890 aquatint from John Leech illustrating the ridiculously silly English character, Mr. Jorrocks, from R(obert) S(mith) Surtees' series of Victorian comedies.

This particular aquatint was gleaned from a all-but-destroyed 1890 copy of Surtees' "Handley Cross, or Mr. Jorrocks' Hunt" and is captioned in a lovely script -

"Mr. Jorrocks wants twenty"

Beautiful and quite frame-worthy, the aquatint is signed by John Leach and the protective tissue cover remains securely attached. Blank on its reverse, the heavy paper measures 5.5" x 8.5" (14x22 cm), is smooth and clean, and has no tears, folds, creases, or marks.

A perfect gift for your equestrian or fox-hunt loving friend. Wonderful for your art ... tag and card creations, scrap-book page making, collage.

You are purchasing an original 1890 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
