20 Portraits in set: Thomas Frye Mezzotints, 1741-62
20 mezzotints by and after Thomas Frye, including the series of 17 life-size heads which he published in two series between 1760 and 1762 and for which he is chiefly remembered. Although probably drawn from real life these prints were issued without titles and, with the exception of Frye's self-portrait, are not presented as portraits but as a series of 'fanciful heads' arranged in diverse poses.
