GREEN, Valentine
(b. 1739, Salford, d. 1813, London)

Portrait of the Ladies Waldegrave

Mezzotint, 1st state, 545 x 620 mm
The Hermitage, St. Petersburg

Green's engravings are distinguished by exceptional richness and subtlety of tone, and by very judicious management of relations of light and shade; and they have, almost without exception, notable freshness and grace of handling.

This work was made after a painting by Joshua Reynolds.
