    Excerpt from Guide to an Exhibition of Mezzotint Engravings: Chiefly From the Cheylesmore Collection

    With these the exhibition closes. S. W. Reynolds, Turner, and Say continued to practise their art long after the date of their work here shown; but like all other manifestations of English art, except landscape in the hands of Turner and Constable, mezzotint suffered a distressing deterioration about and after 1820. In that year Say first tried his hand at mezzotint engraving on steel for commercial purposes the method was quickly adopted by others; the effect was a great loss of richness and quality; the manufacture of paper also deteriorated; and worst of all was the deterioration of the models which the portrait and other painting of the day furnished to the engraver. Amid the general decline, work good of its kind was furnished under the new conditions by two men, the long-lived Samuel Cousins, and especially by David Lucas in his admirably spirited prints after Constable. But these fall outside the scope and purpose of the present exhibition.
