A very rare sepia aquatint of Villefranche.. France.
Attractive view of the popular French Riviera resort and town of Villefranche-sur-Mer by Albanis Beaumont (1753-1810). Printed by T. Bensley, and published for William Faden in London. Beaumont was born in Piedmont, but naturalised in England. This print is from a scarce book of Travels through The Maritime Alps from Italy to Lyons, across the Col de Tende by way of Nice, Provence.
This is a superb quality aquatint ..rare in the the 1790's.
only other example I can find is a cleaned version at £1,000..
