Beautiful engraving "nature to her royal highness the duechess of kent mr queens" by the engraver george thomas doo after the painting "the calmady childrens" by thomas lawrence. Thomas lawrence (1769-1830) was one of the most important painters and portraitists of the english regency. Born in bristol, he began drawing in devizes where his father was an innkeeper. At the age of ten, he financially supported his family by selling portraits. At the age of 18, in 1787, he went to london and became a student at the royal academy. In 1792, he became the painter of king george 3, then of his son, george 3, king of the united kingdom of great britain, ireland and hanover. He was knighted in 1815 and appointed president of the royal academy from 1820 until his death. He was also the master of george henry harlow (history painter and portraitist) and william ety (painter known for his nudes). In 1823, he painted the oil on canvas "the calmady childrens", a portrait of emily and laura calmady, embodying the admiration for the unbridled exuberance of childhood that played a major role in european culture in the late eighteenth century. He describes it as "my best painting... One of the few for which I wish to be known later." this portrait was then made by the english engraver george thomas doo (1800-1886), engraver of king william 4 and queen victoria. It measures, with the frame, 56cm (22.05 inch) by 61cm (24 inch).

Belle gravure "nature to her royal highness the duechess of kent mr queens" par le graveur george thomas doo d'après le tableau "the calmady childrens" de thomas lawrence. Thomas lawrence (1769-1830) était l'un des plus importants peintres et portraitistes de la régence anglaise. Né à bristol, il a commencé à dessiner à devizes où son père était aubergiste. À l'âge de dix ans, il soutenait financièrement sa famille en vendant des portraits. À l'âge de 18 ans, en 1787, il se rend à londres et devient étudiant à la royal academy. En 1792, il devient le peintre du roi george 3, puis de son fils, george 3, roi du royaume-uni de grande-bretagne, d'irlande et de hanovre. Il est fait chevalier en 1815, puis nommé président de la royal academy de 1820 à sa mort. Il fut également le maître de george henry harlow (peintre d'histoire et portraitiste) et de william ety (peintre connu pour ses nus). En 1823, il peint l'huile sur toile "the calmady childrens", un portrait d'emily et laura calmady, incarnant l'admiration pour l'exubérance débridée de l'enfance qui joue un rôle majeur dans la culture européenne à la fin du xviiie siècle. Il le décrit comme "ma meilleure peinture... L'une des rares pour lesquelles je souhaite être connu par la suite". Ce portrait a ensuite été réalisé par le graveur anglais george thomas doo (1800-1886), graveur du roi guillaume 4 et de la reine victoria. Il mesure, avec le cadre, 56cm (22.05 inch) par 61cm (24 inch).
