John Scott is one of England's most famous engravers. He is known for his animal engravings, particularly horses. He was born in New Castle, 1774 and died in Chelsea, 1828.
This work was first published by John Wheble of Warwick Court. It is called "Whiskey Got By Saltram". The lithograph is hand colored in beautiful greens, grey and lavender sky, and bit of red in the bush. The horse is browns with golden undertones showing through. It is elegant, handsome as a horse print should be.
The print measures roughly 6 x 3 3/4 without the titles and is on rag paper 7 x 5. It is from a book that was published in 1872 per my invoice. The writing is a bit hard to read, so 1877 or 1822 could also be possible. It is unframed and in excellent condition. I am listing four small horse prints and I recommend a collection of them framed nicely.
