An absolutely lovely protrait of a young boy in red from the regency period, by John Cother Webb after an unknown artist. This mezzotint is dated 1911 and is signed by the engraver lower right. John Cother Webb (1855-1927) was known in London as the "Doyen" of British engravers. He was born in Torquay, studied under Thomas Landseer in London, perfected the art of producing color mezzotint prints in one pass through the etching press. He is said to have been largely responsible for the increase in interest in and value of reproductive mezzotints during his own lifetime. The engravings were made after portrait paintings by other famous artists, but we have yet to identify this individual! Webb was an early and regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy. His work is found in collections of the Royal Academy, the Victoria and Albert Museum and extensively in the print collection of the British Museum.
