This product is unavailable
Antique Painting by Joseph Barney, Engraved by T. Gaugain " Boy with a kite", framed in a beautiful Antique Gilt Wooden Frame. The Print was framed by Hurst & Co's Fine Art Warehouse, Belfast, label still attached to the back.
I believe this picture is circa early 1900's and was part of an Estate sale in N. Ireland. However, my knowledge of paintings is very limited so further research could be made about this.
Information on the two artists:
Joseph Barney (Wolverhampton 1753 – 13 April 1832 London), was an English artist and engraver. He is usually described as a pupil of Antonio Zucchi and Angelica Kauffman and as a fruit and flower painter to the Prince Regent.
Thomas Gaugain was born at Abbeville in France in 1756, and moved to England with his family while still young. He studied engraving under Richard Houston. He began his artistic career as a painter, and exhibited in 1778 at the Royal Academy, showing A Moravian Peasant, The Shepherdess of the Alps, and a portrait. He continued to exhibit there up to 1782.
From 1780 he devoted himself principally to engraving, using the stipple method, and engraving some of his own designs. Gaugain ranks among the best stipple-engravers of the period, and produced a large number of engravings. Gaugain lived for some years at 4 Little Compton Street, Soho, London.
