John Smith mezzotints, 1683-1729, Vol. II


114 Portraits in set

Volume II of a three volume set of mezzotints by John Smith, many after portraits by Sir Godfrey Kneller. Smith was the leading exponent of mezzotint production in Britain during the late 17th century and this set is believed to have been assembled by him towards the end of his career for sale to a collector.
