A very attractive and picturesque 19th century view of Scarborough, North Yorkshire which was based on a painting by J. M. W. Turner, engraved on steel by W. Chapman and published in The Art Journal (London: George Virtue & Co., 1873).
Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) is arguably the most celebrated British landscape artist of all time. During the 19th century, many of his paintings were reproduced as engravings in notable publications such as the Liber Studiorum, Picturesque Views in England and Wales, The Art Journal and the Turner Gallery. Among the many engravers who produced these Turner engravings was John Cousen (1804-1880). Coulsen’s exquisite taste, skill and ability to translate Turner’s art to copper / steel made him one of the most lauded engravers of the period.
