Anatomical Study by Joseph Maclise Circa 1851

TINKER & TOAD
A beautifull and rare detailed 19th Century coloured lithograph by M & N Hanhart printers. We also have a matching anatomical study available in a separate listing, discount available on the pair. "The drawings of Maclise for Quain's Anatomy of the arteries and for his own Surgical anatomy are indeed done, as Quain wrote, with spirit and effect. These figures of anatomical dissection seem lifelike; in many plates the figure is shown as a torso, or a bust, or as a full-or half-length figure. The faces seem to be a gallery of portraits, perhaps of visitors to the 1851 Great Exhibition. They are mostly young men with fine hair-bearded, clean-shaven, or mustachioed, with or without sideburns. Many appear god-like. This is indeed 'high' art, only incidentally of an anatomical subject. If the analogy is not too far-fetched, Maclise's drawing may be compared with the work in different media of the English Romantic poets or of the composer Berlioz. The same comparisons have been made in relation to the work of the Victorian artist Daniel Maclise (1806-70), Joseph Maclise's older brother. They remained close, traveling in Italy together, and sharing houses in Bloomsbury and Chelsea"

Hello, my name is Miles and I would like to welcome you to my store Tinker & Toad.

We are a family run business in the heart of the beautiful Sussex countryside. We deal in an eclectic mix of antique and modern furniture, architectural salvage, re-worked industrial lighting, decorative arts and a carefully selected choice of paintings and modern art.

We have a bricks and mortar shop in Heathfield, East Sussex where we always welcome first-time buyers, collectors and interior designers. We have retailed from the shop for 18 years and took over the premises ourselves in 2015 and have seen a gradual increase on returning customers. We pride ourselves on giving a personal, friendly shopping experience and hope you will arrive a stranger, but leave as a friend.

With our love of both antique and modern interiors, we enjoy helping our customers to furnish a space, whether it's a loft apartment, a club, a cottage or a castle. We have supplied many wonderful customers, including Soho House, The Box Club London, Elmore Court Gloucestershire, Bonnington House Scotland and the Ned Hotel London. I am happy to take a phone call seven days a week, 8am to 8pm or feel free to pop me over an email. We look forward to hearing from you.

Warmest regards, Miles.
