Stunning Pair of Original Eighteenth-Century Copper Engravings of South African Hottentot Man & Hottentot Woman.
Beautiful colours and vibrancy considering they are 228 years old! This pair of original copper engravings of a South African Hottentot man and Hottentot woman were engraved in the late eighteenth century by J. Chapman and published in 1795.
J. Chapman was one of the most gifted stipple engravers of the late eighteenth century and during his career engraved exceptional subjects after the designs of Raphael Courbould and J. Smith. He also worked closely with Thomas Macklin on his Shakespeare series.
The modern large black mounts and dark surrounds with gilt detailing frame the engravings perfectly which all adds to giving them the wow factor.
