THOMAS DANIELL R.A. (1749-1840) and WILLIAM DANIELL R.A. (1769-1837)
The following 7 lots form part of the Daniells' enormously successful project of translating their painted views of India into print (see note to lots 201-214). The hand-coloured aquatints from Oriental Scenery and Views in Calcutta display the subtlety and bright tones of the watercolours resulting from Thomas and William Daniell's three tours around The Ganges, the South and the Temples of Bombay.
The quotations in the following catalogue notes are taken from the four surviving journals that William Daniell kept during part of the journey, published by M. Hardie and M. Clayton, Walker's Quarterly, 1932, nod 35-6, pp.1-106 and from the small octavo texts published by
Thomas Daniell with each part of Oriental Scenery, London,
1795-1808, 6 vols.
The Abbey references refer to the collection catalogue of Major J.R.
Abbey, Travel in Aquatint and Lithography 1770-1860, vol II,
London, 1957. The Archer references refer to Mildred Archer, Early
Views of India: The Picturesque Views of Thomas and William Daniell,
1786-1794, London, 1980.
