VIEW OF LONDON WITH BLACKFRIARS BRIDGE

“Vue de la Ville de Londres” Magnificent aquatint engraving by Joseph Schütz after Friedrich Ferdinand Runk, published c. 1810-1820 by Artaria & Comp. of Vienna. Original hand colouring. Size: approx. 45 x 69 cm. Framed.

London as seen from the Southwark side of Blackfriars Bridge, with St. Paul’s Cathedral dominating the skyline in the background.

Particularly interesting is the staffage of the scene. On the bridge we see pedestrians, soldiers on foot and on horseback, various types of carriages, a dray, a coach, a cart with logs. Also there is quite some traffic on the river Thames.

Ferdinand Runk (1764 Freiburg im Breisgau – 1834 Vienna) was a landscape painter and engraver graduated from the Vienna Art Academy.
