Fine decorative 19th century engraving print, titled at bottom margin "Philadelphia from Belmont (WEST PARK)", by English-born artist ROBERT HINSHELWOOD (1812-1879). Hinshelwood came to the United States in 1835 as a young man and pursued his art skills, in both painting and engraving. In this case he seems to have engraved after his own original painting---a fairly rare skill combination. Hinshelwood worked for Harpers and other publications of his day, and also as an engraver for Continental Bank Note Company. This print, 7 1/2" by 9 1/2" inside the mat and 12" by 15 1/2" framed, is clean and the dark ox-blood color frame with heavy varnish is quite complementary. Will nicely complement your Philadelphia area home.
