  • PRINTS AFTER JAMES NORTHCOTE
    is that good behavior and diligence in one s work will lead to great rewards Otherwise the only other consideration is ruin from immorality These prints are after paintings by James Northcote 1746 1831 an English painter and writer He was largely self taught before his arrival in London in 1771 when he entered the Royal Academy Schools and joined Joshua Reynolds as a pupil and assistant remaining with Reynolds until 1776 From 1773 to 1776 he exhibited portraits at the Royal Academy For much of Northcote s career his paintings depended heavily on Reynolds style He considered himself something of an authority on Reynolds and published his valuable Memoirs of Sir Joshua Reynolds in 1813 the year of the Reynolds exhibition at the British Institution French engraver and print publisher Thomas Gaugain 1756 1812 was active mostly in England He entered the Royal Academy Schools London in 1771 with the aim of becoming a painter he exhibited in 1778 81 at the Royal Academy In 1780 he began to engrave initially engraving and publishing his own prints Some color prints that he published were among the few English ones printed from several plates rather than à la poupée Eventually Gaugain built up a successful business but the decline in the export trade probably affected Gaugain more than most print publishers as in 1793 his stock of plates were auctioned off He continued to engrave and his most notable project was this ambitious Hogarthian set of Diligence and Dissipation after ten pictures exhibited in 1796 by James Northcote These are splendid prints with much detail on decorative art costume social history and human behavior Unfortunately one of the prints was missing when we purchased the set otherwise we would have sold the complete portfolio Each one stands as its own
