This week’s work of art is by Gerard de la Barthe, a 18th century French artist, as re-created by an English printmaker, painter and draughtsman named J.S. Barth. The painting/print is known as A View of the Genuine Beer Brewery Golden Lane, Established 1804.
One of the original prints is in the collection of the British Museum, which was completed in 1807. The scene depicts the brewery in a wide angle shot that also shows part of the city of London from the same year.
Unfortunately, there’s little information about the original artist, Gerard de la Barthe.
