William WALCOT - Sack of a Sicilian Temple

Etching with drypoint and aquatint; pencil signed and editioned; numbers "1875" notated beside signature; printed by the artist on heavy, antique-white wove. This extremely rare etching of the Collosi at Thebes was from the collection of the San Francisco book dealer Warren Howell (1912-1984). In 1914 Walcot did a large etching and drypoint (Dickens 20, H/L 35) titled ÒThe Trojan HorseÓ. The Sotheby's sale of 6/27/01 of the Leverhume Collection included an artist's proof of this print, titled "Virgil's Aeneid - Book 2, The Trojan Horse", lot 463. Lot 469 was titled "Palace at Thebes, Egypt" which was also an artist's proof, which was a similar size to the print we are offering (no image was available). This title is not noted in either Dickens or Harvey-Lee. This impression may be the same as lot 469 before the plate was trimmed, or another print entirely. The temple was destroyed by flood and scavengers and this is the artist's impression of how it originally looked.
