1867 there were mostly some fine specimens at
their annual Old-Master Exhibitions. This has
been continued by the Royal Academy from
1871 to the present day. In the winter of
1883^1 an Exhibition of 231 pictures by Sir
Joshua was held at the Grosvenor Gallery, at
which most of the more notable pictures in this list
were hung.

About 700 large contemporary plates were en-
graved after Reynolds, by McArdell, J. R. Smith,
Valentine Green, J. Watson, T. Watson, E. Fisher,
J. Dixon, R. Houston, W. Dickenson, J. Jones, G.
Marchi, Sharp, Doughty, Haward, Sherwin, and
other engravers of the eighteenth century. In 1873

Samuel Cousins commenced engraving large plates
after Sir Joshua, which he continued until shortly
before his death in 1887.

Following is a list of over 250 of Sir Joshua's
most important works, of which the date of paint-
ing is known arranged in chronological order so
as to show where the best pictures of any year may
now be found only a few fancy subjects included,
as the dates are unknown in many instances. It
is satisfactory to observe how few of the finer
pictures have left the country.

19 0->- A. G,

landscape painter, was born in London in the year
1773. His grandfather was a West Indian planter,
and his father was also a West Indian. His earliest
mezzotinted plate, a portrait of George, Prince of
Wales, is dated 1794, and is inscribed : " Engraved
by S. W. Reynolds, late pupil to C[harles] Hfoward]
Hodges." He is also believed to have studied
under John Raphael Smith. Being a painter as
well as a mezzotinter, his engraved work, in
common with that of other English mezzotinters,
bears the impress of high artistic excellence, as
well as of trained technical skill. He was also
expert as an etcher, and employed etched work
liberally in the early stages of his mezzotint
plates, and by the adroit introduction of strong-
bitten lines added to the effects he desired to pro-
duce. He was also an accomplished stipple and
aquatint engraver, and was accustomed to com-
bine several styles of work in one plate. Therefore
very few, if any, of his engravings are in pure
mezzotint, almost all being in the "mixed method."
Reynolds was made drawing-master to the
daughters of George III., but excused himself
from a knighthood that was offered him. In 1797
he exhibited his first picture at the Royal Academy,
and though he was a regular contributor until
about 1827 (except between the years 1811 and
1818), he never exhibited a print. He lived chiefly
at Poland Street, Oxford Street, and Ivy Cottage,
Bayswater, and from these two addresses published
a great number of his plates. Many of his finest
works were engraved by about the year 1804, but
he did much excellent mezzotinting until nearly
the close of his life. He was a most rapid worker,
and engraved in mezzotint nearly three hundred
and fifty portraits, and a great variety of subject
pieces, besides executing a number of plates in
etching and stipple. Among his plates are many
from the canvases of Von Breda, Edridge, Hopp-
ner, Jackson, Lawrence, Lonsdale, Northcote,
Opie, Owen, Phillips, and Sir J. Reynolds. S. W.
Reynolds also produced the series of three hundred
and fifty-seven small mezzotints (portraits and



subjects), after all the then accessible paintings of
Sir J. Reynolds, which were issued in four folio
volumes. This work involved a vast amount of
labour travelling about the country to make copies
of the paintings, as well as engraving the plates.
Though Reynolds engraved many of his mezzotints
on steel which metal was introduced about 1820
by W. Say and T. Lupton only two of them are
so lettered : the portrait of Lady Georgiana Agar-
Ellis, and ' Distant View of Rome.' In 1809 Rey-
nolds paid his first visit to Paris, and exhibited at
the Salons of 1810 and 1812. In 1814 he received
Samuel Cousins as a pupil at Poland Street, and
in 1823 David Lucas was apprenticed to him at
Bayswater. Cousins claimed to have engraved
between eighty and ninety plates of the Sir Joshua
Reynolds series. In 1825 S. \V. Reynolds went a
second time to Paris, and remained some consider-
able time painting and engraving. He exerted a
strong influence on the French artists of the day,
who were astonished at his work, and he mezzo-
tinted many subject pieces after the French
painters : P. Delaroche, H. Vernet, Gericault,
Danloux, Dubufe, Haudebourt (Lescot), Chariot,
and others. His chief pupil in Paris was Georges
Maile. Although Reynolds at times painted por-
traits, his work with the brush was mainly con-
fined to landscapes, and specimens of his water-
colours are to be seen at the Victoria and Albert,
and British Museums. He died of paralysis at
Bayswater, August 13, 1835, leaving two sons and
four daughters, several of whom, to some degree,
inherited their father's artistic talent. Among
Reynolds' most important plates are :

son of the preceding, was born January 25, 1794,
and died July 7, 1872. He studied portrait paint-
ing under William Owen, and exhibited at the
Royal Academy from 1820 to 1845. Several of his
portrait paintings were engraved in mezzotint by
his father. He learnt mezzotinting from his
father, whom he assisted during his declining
years. Upon his father's death he adopted mezzo-
tinting as a profession, and altogether engraved
about a hundred plates. For a number of years
he resided and worked at 15, Holland Road,
Kensington. A.W.
