"LAMB ROW, CHESTER".
BY GEORGE CUITT II (1799-1854).
PL.49 - PUBLISHED 1848 IN CUITT'S COLLECTED ETCHINGS, PUBLISHED BY NATTALI.
George Cuitt the Younger, (1799-1854).
George Cuitt the Younger, the only son of the painter of the same names, was born at Richmond, in Yorkshire, in 1779. He followed his father's profession from his youth, and added to it the art of etching, which he developed with great success, being induced to do so by a careful study of Piranesi's 'Roman Antiquities.' He went to Chester, where he became a teacher of drawing, and published, in 1810 and 1811, 'Six Etchings of Saxon and other Buildings remaining at Chester,' 'Six Etchings of Old Buildings in Chester,' and 'Six Etchings of Picturesque Buildings in Chester,' and, in 1815, five etchings for a 'History of Chester.' About 1820, having realized a certain competence by his labours, he retired from the more active duties of his profession, and built himself a house at Masham, near Richmond, from whence he published his 'Yorkshire Abbeys,' and in 1848 his collected works, under the title of 'Wanderings and Pencillings amongst the Ruins of Olden Times.' These etchings exhibit considerable talent, verve, originality, and truth. His death occurred at Masham in 1854.
