Nymph adorning the Statue of Pan, 1778-1781.
4 0 c m
actual image size: 25cm x 32cm


Mechanical painting of a clasical allegory by Francis Eginton after a painting by Angelica Kauffmann, or an engraving of it by Ryland. The mechanical painting proces is considered significant for its use of an albumen surface and may be regarded as aquatint at an intermediate stage ready for transfer printing proceses akin to those used in ceramic technology. This picture has faded considerably since its creation.
