Rare mezzotint on glass of Marquis of Wellington

WALPOLES
A good and rare mezzotint, laid down onto glass and reverse painted, 'Field Marshall. Marquis of Wellington Defeating the French Army Commanded by Marshall Soult, on the Pyrenees'. Within a fine, period, pearwood-faced, ebonized frame with a reeded, gilt sight-edge. 16.5 in x 12.5 in. The Battle of the Pyrenees was a large-scale offensive launched on the order of Napoleon, 25 July 1813. Commanded by Marshal Nicolas Jean de Dieu Soult from the Pyrénées region in the hope of relieving French garrisons under siege at Pamplona and San Sebastián. Initial success was halted in the face of increased allied resistance under the command of Arthur Wellesley, Marquess of Wellington. Soult abandoned the offensive on 30 July and headed toward France, having failed to relieve either garrison.

Walpoles is an antiques business that has been established for more than 35 years with an extensive stock which can be divided into three broad themes: "The Army" encompassing colonial furniture and works of art, folk art of the British soldier as well as campaign furniture, pictures and objects of a military theme; "The Navy" covering fine and folk art associated with the British Royal and Merchant Navy fleets as well as fine art and objects that fall under a title of "The China Trade"; and finally there is an established core of furniture, pictures and works of art typical of "The English Country House".

Founded by Graham Walpole, the business first set up in Church Street, in London’s Marylebone, and by the end of the 1980s had moved to Westbourne Grove, from where they dealt until the turn of the last century. In 2004 Walpoles relocated to their home town of Greenwich and joined the British Antiques Dealers Association but now work from 111 Portobello Road.
