Description

FRAMED HANDCOLORED ENGRAVING Late 18th Century "The Embarkation of King Henry VIII at Dover May XXXIst MDXX Preparatory to his interview with the French King Francis I. From the original picture twelve feet and one inch in length, and six feet five inches in height, preserved in the Royal Apartments in Windsor Castle." Drawn from the original by S.H. Grimm. Engraved by James Basire in July 1781. The original painting hangs along with its companion piece "The Field of the Cloth of Gold," in the Queen's collection at Hampton Court. The spectacle of the events in May and June, 1520 made enough of an impression to warrant composition of the works, each being about 12 feet long. Some toning and marginal stains. Possible trimming, especially to top margin. Image size, 45" x 22".
