PROOF NELSON MEZZOTINT, AFTER JOHN HOPPNER, 1805-06
a proof copy of Charles Turner's mezzotint, after the iconic image by John Hoppner of Nelson standing left in full dress uniform, but lacking all the caption details on the published versions, with small facsimile signatures of Hoppner and Turner below (within the plate line), attractive contemporary hand-colouring, mounted and framed for display -- 35 x 26in. (89.5 x 65.5cm.) overall

First published as a print on 9th January 1806, this untitled proof was undoubtedly run off slightly earlier, in late 1805.
