A remarkable 215 years old print, published in London by William Holland in 1788. This mezzotint (uncolored) engraved plate, after a painting by George Morland, was engraved by William Ward (his brother-in-law and foremost engraver) and printed on fine wove paper. Excellent condition apart from overall light soiling with professionally repaired tears at the top and bottom - plate marks and a few small marginal tears. Unframed, overall size about 20 7/16" x 17 1/8", image size about 16 3/4" x 14" - titles below as shown in pix. George Morland (1763-1804), English genre, portrait, landscape, and animal painter was a celebrated artist during his lifetime. His best attributes are shown in the social scenes of the average English man, and woman, which he depicted faithfully. Any original Morland painting is very valuable, and engravings of his work done during his lifetime are highly collectible today. PAYPAL PAYMENT OR BANK OF AMERICA/WELLS FARGO CHECK!

A charming domestic scene; text below image is as follows:

The Strangers at Home

Young Roger the plowman who wanted a Mate,
Went along with his Daddy a courting to Kate,
With a nosegay so large in his holiday cloaths,
His hands in his pockets away Roger goes;

Now he was as bashful as bashful could be,
And Kitty poor girls was as bashful as he,
So he bowed, and he stared, & he let his hat fall,
The he grinned, scratched his head, and said nothing at all:

If awkward the swain, no less awkward the maid,
She simper'd & blushed, with her apron strings play'd,
Till the old folks impatient to have the thing done,
Agreed that young Roger & Kate should be one.

Le Jeune Laboureur Roger faisant la coeur a Sa Maitresse Catherine
