Barges, by Edward Cooke

Short Description

Stock No. 5351PS

Etching drawn and etched by Edward William Cooke for his Fifty Plates of Shipping and Craft, 1829.  Plate 169 x 210 mm., sheet 210 x 283 mm.  Professionally cleaned and delicately hand-coloured.  Faint mottling to sheet.

Edward William Cooke (1811-1880, RA 1864), the son of the engraver George Cooke (1781-1834), was an important painter, etcher and engraver who specialised in maritime scenes, though he also produced landscape, botanical and architectural work.  His precocity as both a draftsman and an etcher is apparent in this series of plates, published when he was only eighteen.
