Oswald Brierly 1855 Revel from Nargen Island - Sold

After Sir Oswald Walters Brierly, a coloured lithograph entitled Revel from Nargen Island, published by Day & Sons, 1855.

Oswald Brierly
was born at Chester on 19 May 1817 and studied in Bloomsbury before moving to Plymouth to study Naval architecture and rigging. In 1841 he started on a round the world voyage and settled as a colonist in Auckland. In 1850, Henry Keppel asked Brierly to join him on the HMS Meander, visiting New Zealand, the Friendly and Society Islands, Chile, Peru, and Mexico, and returning by the Straits of Magellan and Rio de Janeiro, reaching England in 1851. Keppel's account of the voyage, was illustrated by Brierly's lithographs. After the declaration of war with Russia in February 1854, Brierly was present at the Baltic operations of the allied fleets, and sent home sketches for publication in the Illustrated London News. In 1855, Brierly had published a series of fifteen large lithographs executed from his drawings, with the title The English and French Fleets in the Baltic, 1854. In the second year of the war, he witnessed all the chief events of the war in the Black Sea and Sea of Azov, and visited Circassia and Mingrelia.

The firm of Day & Sons was one of the largest lithographic printers of the 19th Century. In 1851 they gained a prize medal at the Great Exhibition for their work on lithography.
