Product Description

This piece is very rare a superb commemoration of the Spanish Armada of 1688. Pine's prints were engraved after drawings by C. Lempriere and embellished with elegant borders incorporating emblematic naval figures by Hubert Gravelot. 

This is the only record of the battle as depicted on the tapestries that originally hung in Parliament's, House of Lords, before it was destroyed by a fire.

 

 

As lettered on the title page accompanying the original set; 

"The tapestry hangings of the House of Lords: representing the several engagements between the English and Spanish fleets, in the ever memorable year MDLXXXVIII, with the portraits of the Lord High-Admiral, and the other noble commanders, taken from the life. To which are added, from a book entitled, Expeditionis Hispanorum in Angliam Vera Descriptio, A.D. 1588, done, as is supposed, for the said tapestry to be work’d after, ten charts of the sea-coasts of England, and a general one of England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Holland, &c. shewing the places of action between the two fleets; ornaments with medals struck upon the occasion, and other suitable devices. Also an historical account of each day’s action, collected from the most authentic manuscripts and writers. By John Pine, engraver. London, MDCCXXXIX. Sold by J. Pine in Old Bond Street near Picadilly."

John Pine was an English designer, engraver, and cartographer whose achievements were recognized in 1743, when he became Engraver of His Majesty’s Signet and Seals, and subsequently Bluemantle Pursulvant of Arms in Ordinary.
