David Wilkie Engraving, 1840, The Blind Fiddler, framed. Large size.

Beautiful engraving of the David Wilkie R.A.  painting, 'The Blind Fiddler'. This was an early painting of David Wilkie in 1806, and now housed by the Tate Gallery. the painting was originally commissioned by Sir George Beaumont and was exhibited at the Royal Acadamy in 1807.

Sir David Wilkie lived from 1785-1841 and was a prominent Scottish painter, based in London. He was Principal Painter in Ordinary to King William IV and Queen Victoria.

It was engraved by John Burnet.

Undated, but c. 1840 (we know of a John Burnet engraving of David Wilkie's work in 1831 and also 1842). This is an early engraving and not to be confused with later reproductions.

Published by Paul Terrard and Son's at their Fine Art Gallery, 170 Fleet Street, London.

The engraving is of wonderful quality with beautiful detail on display, with mild foxing - more noticeable on the bordering paper.

Outer frame size: 70cm high x 86.5cm wide x 4cm deep. Hanging cord to rear.
