Item specifics

Seller notes: Very Good condition. This is a clean and well-defined example of Vandergucht’s engraving after Edward Bower. Unlike many original artworks of this vintage (250+ years), it has not suffered serious foxing (age-related light brown spots), although there is some browning along the top and vertical edges of the sheet of heavyweight laid paper. There are no other obvious defects. The width of the left margin, which is thinner than its counterpart on the right, and which narrows from c.9mm at the top of the portrait to c.6mm at the bottom, means that only a small amount of the unprinted margin could be shown if the engraving was mounted prior to being framed.

AN ORIGINAL 18th CENTURY ANTIQUE ENGRAVING BY

 MICHAEL VANDERGUCHT,

AFTER A PORTRAIT BY ENGLISH PAINTER

EDWARD BOWER,

OF

JOHN PYM (d.1643), LEADER OF THE LONG PARLIAMENT, FIERCE CRITIC OF KING CHARLES I AND ONE OF THE ‘FIVE MEMBERS’ WHOSE ATTEMPTED ARREST SPARKED THE ENGLISH CIVIL WARS

 

Antwerp-born Michael Vandergucht (1683 – 1756) originally engraved this image, amongst others, for Edward Ward’s verse history of the English Civil Wars, ‘History of the Grand Rebellion’ (1713).  Vandergucht worked from a likeness of John Pym painted by London’s Edward Bower (active 1635-67), who is best known for his portraits of Charles I at his trial.  

The engravings were then re-used, with plate numbers added, in later editions of the (much better known) ‘History of the Rebellion and Civil Wars in England’, by Edward Hyde, Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to Charles I, who was later raised to the peerage as 1st Earl of Clarendon.

Pym, born in Somerset, qualified as a lawyer and became a committed Puritan before entering Parliament, latterly serving as MP for Tavistock in Devon.  He emerged as one of the King’s leading opponents, defending the rights and powers of Parliament and attacking royal advisors such as Strafford and Laud.  When the first English Civil War broke out in 1642, Pym helped to finance the Parliamentary war effort – but did not live to see his side’s victory.  He died, probably from cancer, in 1643.

 This example of Vandergucht’s engraving, which is in Very Good condition, apparently comes from Clarendon rather than from Ward, as it has the plate number 23 in the bottom right corner (see our scans).  

  

PLEASE NOTE 

This listing is for an original antique engraving – not for a modern print or facsimile.

All of the images accompanying this listing are of the actual item for sale.  However, the images are derived from professional-quality scans of the artwork that may not include the entire piece of paper.  We aim for total accuracy in all our listings and will always include (under CONDITION, below) details of any tears, creasing, foxing or other defects affecting the sheet of paper, as well as any affecting the artwork itself. 

Finally, we also strive to include accurate historical details regarding artists, engravers, publications and publishers.

We grade the overall condition of antique and vintage artworks in one or more of the following four categories:

VERY GOOD: minor foxing / spotting confined to the margins of the artwork.

GOOD: more general foxing, not limited to the margins of the artwork.

FAIR: a large amount of foxing or some other significant defect such as a tear or crease.

 

SUITABLE FOR FRAMING: YES
