This catalogue raisonné is the only single volume to contain all Stubbss known engravings and provides a complete record of prints made by others after his works. Introductory essays consider Stubbss relationships with other artists, particularly his engravers, and examine how the prints were originally marketed.Part 1 covers the more important prints issued during Stubbss lifetime, some of which are published here for the first time. Each of the 218 entries is fully illustrated and accompanied by comparative material.Part 2 comprises 440 supplementary entries and indicates the nature and extent of Stubbss posthumous reputation.This book also is the first substantial review of the work of a major 18th century British painter by reference to the important, but neglected, medium of reproductive prints.
