John Cecil, 6th Earl of Exeter 1686

By John Smith, published by Edward Cooper, after William Wissing .From volume "Mezzotintoes by Smith Vol II" 1689 . By and published by John Smith, t Mezzotint  340 mm x 255  cut to image with some light edge soiling, large  old crease diagonal left ,old crease at centre . John Smith (1652-1743) was a gifted and ambitious printmaker and publisher whose long career began in the reign of Charles II and closed after the accession of George II. He was born in Northamptonshire and worked in London, specializing in the relatively new technique of mezzotint printing. Between 1683 and 1729 he produced over three hundred prints. Trained as a printmaker he was able to retain a controlling hand when, in the early 1690s, he turned from pure printmaking to printmaking and publishing. The refinement and 'modernity' of his prints brought him fame and then material prosperity and Smith's career, largely independent of interference from outside publishers, must have been an inspiration to William Hogarth (1697-1764) and the next generation of printmakers. .Whole length portrait by William Wissing in the collection of the Marquess of Exeter, Burghley House, Northamptonshire. £75 inc delivery

The Rt Hon John Earl of Exeter
John Cecil, 5th Earl of Exeter
From volume "Mezzotintoes by Smith Vol II" 1689 . By and published by John Smith, after Sir Godfrey Kneller, Bt Mezzotint  340 mm x 255   cut to image with some light edge soiling, large  old crease diagonal left ,soft crease at base. John Smith (1652-1743) was a gifted and ambitious printmaker and publisher whose long career began in the reign of Charles II and closed after the accession of George II. He was born in Northamptonshire and worked in London, specializing in the relatively new technique of mezzotint printing. Between 1683 and 1729 he produced over three hundred prints. Trained as a printmaker he was able to retain a controlling hand when, in the early 1690s, he turned from pure printmaking to printmaking and publishing. The refinement and 'modernity' of his prints brought him fame and then material prosperity and Smith's career, largely independent of interference from outside publishers, must have been an inspiration to William Hogarth (1697-1764) and the next generation of printmakers. £95 inc delivery
