George Morland



The Farmer's Door


Late 18th Century Mezzotint engraving with original handcoloring.


George Morland was a painter of animals and rustic scenes of English country life. His works were much beloved in his time, and widely engraved by some of he best engravers of his time.


"The Farmer's Door" is one of a pair of stipple engravings by Benjamin Duterreau after George Morland. The work was part of a pair contrasting city and country life, showing the same woman in one scene as a farmer's wife, in the other as a city squire's wife. The other engraving, entitled "The Squire's Door," shows a woman in elegant city clothing stepping out from a townhouse.


Benjamin Duterrau ( 2 March 1768 – 11 July 1851) was an English painter, etcher, engraver, sculptor and art lecturer. Later in his life, Duterreau emigrated to Tasmania, where he became known for his images of Indigenous people and Australian history paintings.
