The Quadrangular Passion-flower. Thornton Dr.

The Quadrangular Passion-flower.

London: Dr. Thornton, 1802. Elephant folio aquatint, stipple and line, printed in color and finished by hand from Dr. Thornton's landmark work the "Temple of Flora". The spectacular open blooms of the passion flower are shown climbing a corinthian column, with a classical building in the right background. This is the 3rd State of the print, which is probably the most dramatic of the three, with additional stipple to the leaves, and the pronounced fluting at the base of the column. Henderson, pinx., Hopwood, sculp. June 1, 1802. Impression mark 41 x 55 cm with wide margins. Dunthorne p249. Very vibrant colors. Item #15451
