JOHN MARTIN, Hayden Bridge, Northumberland 1789 – 1854 London. The Creation of Light. This original mezzotint is for sale, price £500

 

JOHN MARTIN
Hayden Bridge, Northumberland 1789 – 1854 London

Martin took up mezzotint by 1824; a painterly technique whose rich chiaroscuro was particularly suited to realising his romantic vision of landscape and dramatic themes taken largely from the Bible or from Milton.
That year the publisher Septimus Prowett commissioned twenty-four mezzotint illustrations to Milton’s Paradise Lost. While work was in progress Prowett extended his commission to a second series, of reduced size, though similar in composition. Both series were issued either as lettered proofs in editions of 50, or as unlimited lettered ‘prints’.

Martin composed the Paradise Lost mezzotints directly onto the plates and, as both the originating artist and the engraver, was paid on average over 70 guineas per plate. A remarkable figure if compared to Lupton’s 5 gns per plate for adding mezzotint to J M W Turner’s etched Liber Studiorum plates.

The Creation of Light
Campbell/Wees 65; Milton’s Paradise Lost Book 7 line 339
Original mezzotint, 1824, for the smaller series of Paradise Lost. A lettered proof, edition of 50, published by Septimus Prowett 1825. Unusually printed on a sheet of Imperial folio laid paper, rather than quarto. Various small defects, mainly in the margins.

FRANK HENRY MASON, Seaton Carew, Durham 1876 – 1965.The Collier Transport. This original drypoint is sold

 

FRANK HENRY MASON
Seaton Carew, Durham 1876 – 1965

Frank Mason’s early career, before he became a marine artist, was as a seaman, engineer and shipbuilder. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1900.

During the First World War Mason served as a lieutenant in the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve in the North Sea and in Egypt. In the latter part of 1915 he commanded the Motor Launch 33 in the Suez Canal zone.

The Collier Transport “River Clyde” landing troops at V Beach, Sedd-el-Bahr, in the Dardanelles, 25th April, 1915
175 x 301 mm
Drypoint. Signed in pencil. With the original label.

Sold

Irish troops and Hampshire Regiment landing under intense fire, at the start of the Gallipoli campaign.

The Allies landed on the Gallipoli peninsular on 25-26 April, 1915; the 29th Division at Cape Helles and Sedd-el-Bahrin on the tip in the south and the Australian & New Zealand Corps at Ari Burnu, further to the north.

The 29th division landed troops at five small coves, designated as ‘S’, ‘V’, ‘W’, ‘X’ and ‘Y’ beaches. The landing at ‘V’ beach was made by boats containing three companies of the 1st Royal Dublin Fusiliers, followed by the collier ‘River Clyde’ with the rest of the Dubliners, the 1st Royal Munster Fusiliers, half of the 2nd Hampshire Regiment and other troops. The beaches proved to be strongly fortified and casualties were very heavy.

Sedd el Bar is mentioned in an Irish ballad The Foggy Dew, written by the Canon Charles O’Neill in 1919. The lyrics chronicle the Easter Uprising of 1916 and praise the Irishmen who supported the Irish cause rather than fighting with the British in the First World War

‘Twas better to die ‘neath an Irish sky than at Suvla or Sud el Bar. .
