This is a very fine digital reproduction from the original artists proofs of an etching by E Landells for the 1839 edition of the British Angler’s Manual. It shows a solitary angler fishing the River Thames. This high quality digital reproduction beautifully captures the concentration of an angler as he ties a new fly to his line. Despite its size, the detail and texture of the print shows the wonderful workmanship of a master engraver working in the 1830’s in Britain. To our knowledge this is the first time this etching has been available to the public.
The image is 160 by 120mm and is printed on 205mm by 255mm (A4) finest Ilford cotton rag 310 gram paper using the highest quality digital reproduction methods and archival inks. The picture looks stunning when in a simple black frame. It is printed on A4 paper allowing you to choose the size of frame.
E Landells was a master engraver who produced his work in the early 19th century. Many of his etchings are now held by major museums and galleries around the world and seldom come available and when they do, sell for a premium.
The print is a great present for anyone who loves fly-fishing or just appreciate the fabulous landscape shown.
