Hippopotamus DNL200 $75
Each plate measures

The stunning artistry of William Daniell (1769–1837) makes these aquatints of
animals an exceptionally rare treat.
Daniell was painter, primarily of English
landscapes and seaside images. Born to a bricklayer who died prematurely, young
William was sent to live with his uncle Thomas Daniell, a prominent landscape
artist. William subsequently became his uncle's
assistant, traveling together through India preparing
the drawings and sketches for Oriental Scenery,
his greatest work. Daniell's works also include the
remarkable A Voyage Round Great Britain, and he
exhibited at the Royal Academy and the British Institution.
These images, also featured in Wood's Zoology, portray animals,
birds and insects in their natural
habitats. Each image is an accurately detailed rendering printed as an aquatint, a
process giving them the subtlety of watercolor painting. The composition and
detail in each plate is striking, each a cameo of
artistry and nature.
The plate area of each print measures approximately 7 1/4 inches by 10 inches
to the plate mark on a
creamy paper, with a additional margin. We have made
allowances for condition on these prints due to their
extreme scarcity and some have foxing as shown, though
the image area of almost all is free of any staining.
