Etching and stipple engraving, uncolored, 19.5 x 24.25 inches, overall. Dramatic stylized depiction of the death of Lord Robert Manners (1758-1782), a British military hero and captain in the Royal Navy. Manners was mortally wounded at the Battle of Les Saintes in the West Indies, dying 11 days later of tetanus. The engraving is in a Romantic vein, with the young captain surrounded by gesturing sailors who have rushed to his aid, amidst the swirling smoke of battle. The youthful, aristocratic and brave Manners captured the imagination of his contemporaries and was the subject of other works of art notably including a 1782 portrait by Sir Joshua Reynolds and The Three Captains Memorial in the north transept of Westminster Abbey. Thomas Stothard was a popular, prolific and successful English painter and book illustrator, highly regarded by such contemporaries as Thomas Lawrence and Walter Scott. Stothard studied at the Royal Academy. From the beginning of his career, book illustration was his main focus. He made numerous paintings of scenes from British history that were popularized as engravings. John Keyse Sherwin was an English engraver, best known for his many works after master painters including Poussin, Reynolds, Stothard and Gainsborough. John's younger brother Charles Sherwin assisted him but also engraved independently, including plates for Bell's British History. Charles was active from about 1780 until his death in 1794. Thomas Macklin (1760-1800) was an English publisher and printseller. Macklin's firm operated in London from 1779 until his death in 1800, when Hannah Macklin took over operated the business until 1809. He was also proprietor of the Poets' Gallery in Fleet Street.
