View of Westminster Bridge Including Westminster Hall and the Abbey.
1790 - London, W.Byrne, 1790. Coloured aquatint with soft ground etching. 460 x 670mm. Two small tears in edges repaired. A fine aquatint etched by Joseph Constantine Stadler after Joseph Farington. Taken from water level, Behind is Westminster Hall, the oldest building in the Palace of Westminster (completed 1097), and Westminster Abbey (begun in 1245, here showing the two western towers built by Nicholas Hawkesmoor 1722-45). Along the Thames are the Thames Watermen transporting cargo and passengers along the river. Joseph Farington (1747-1821) was a painter who is best remembered for his landscapes for John Boydell's 'History of the River Thames', which regarded as a landmark English colour-plate book. This print is on a far grander scale, allowing much finer detail.
