A Game at Chess (The Rev. and Mrs. Debary) - 1808

After Thomas Phillips.


Mezzotint over some etching on laid paper. Size of sheet: 25 x 40,5 cm. Published in London by Thomas Phillips.

Whitman 1903, 424.


Provenance: Collection of Bernard Houthakker (Lugt 1272);

His sale as Sotheby Mak van Waay B.V. in Amsterdam, 15 June 1982, lot 26 (sold for 425 Dutch gilders).


Very fine richly inked impression, trimmed inside the platemark. There is a small, restored tear (~8mm) over the chair of the male figure, otherwise in very good condition.


Rare print. We could find another impression of this print in the British Museum (1864,1210.429), but otherwise we could not locate any further impressions in public collections.
