Lot Essay

In A. C. Coxhead's illustrated monograph on Thomas Stothard, R.A (London, 1906) he describes the miniature publications produced by Pickering in the mid 1820's for which Thomas Stothard designed frontispieces: 'Catullus, Tibullus and Propertius has a group of nymphs and fauns; Horace has a picture of Venus stepping from a shell, attended by young sea-gods, cupids flutter in the air above her head.' (p. 214).
