PUGH, Edward, 1763-1813 : THE SOCIETY OF ARTS DISTRIBUTING ITS PREMIUMS.
London : Richard Phillips, 1804. An attractive and unusual antique print – the (Royal) Society of Arts in formal session in the Great Room at John Adam Street. Some at least of the figures are drawn from the life – the Duke of Northumberland presides and presents a medal, flanked by the secretaries, Charles Taylor to his right and Thomas Taylor to his left; the Duchess of Northumberland and her daughters have seats of honour; the three standing figures are the managers with their white wands – (left to right) Mr Pearsal, Mr Tooke and Mr Gold. Above the assembly are three of the celebrated paintings by James Barry – the Olympic Games, the Triumph of Navigation (Father Thames drawn by nymphs), and the Society itself – with portraits of Lord Romney, William Shipley the founder, Mrs Montague, etc. Engraved by Isaac Taylor (1759-1829) from an original study by Edward Pugh, and originally produced for Phillips’ part-work “Modern London : Being the History and Present State of the British Metropolis” (1804).
