Untitled View of the Pavilion


Aquatint engraving, printed in sepia colour, with some hand colouring. An unrecorded print similar to Images of Brighton 480 but with different foreground figures and carriages. The small open gig, carrying a gentleman and lady passenger, on the left of the Images of Brightonentry, is portrayed in this print by a closed carriage with the royal coat of arms on the door. There is a guard seated behind the carriage and one outrider leads the two horses, but they are not in royal uniform, so the figure in the coach may be a visitor to the Pavilion. No artist or engraver is named. In the Images of Brighton copy, W Saunders is noted as the publisher, c1824, so Saunders’ image is probably the second edition where the royal coach has been engraved out and replaced. Unusually for an aquatint, there is very little outline etching on this print, thus giving a softer appearance than most aquatints.
