John Scott is one of England's most famous engravers. He was known for his animal and particularly horse engravings. He was born in Newcastle, 1774 and died in Chelsea, 1828. This engraving was first published by John Wheble of Warwick Court in 1796. It is called "Bennington".
The print measures roughly 5 3/4 x 3 3/4 (without the titles) on paper of roughly 7 x 5. It is only very nice art paper. The engraving is hand colored with beautiful greys and greens with the browns hues used for the horse and saddle. It is nothing short of elegant.
The print comes from a book I do not have, but if I reading correctly book was published 1872. Second guess would be 1822 - I'll go with the later - date. It is unframed. I am listing four of these, so you can put together a beautiful collection of them for a grouping - with framing of your choice.
