King: Beverley Minster

King: Beverley Minster
Daniel King.
The South Prospect of ye Collegiate Church of Beverley.
Daniel King, delin et sculpsit. [n.d, printed c.1718.]
Etching   205 x 300mm. Very good condition.
Not much is known about this competent etcher, even his dates, but he worked from about 1650. His style is akin to that of Hollar, who was a few years senior to King. He was particularly good at drawing and etching churches, of which there are over fifty subjects. This view of Beverley is typical: it shows the building with a little shading round it, but the surrounds are left plain, no animation, and nothing in the sky other that the coat of arms of Michael Warton and the title.
