William Henry Bartlett Gallery:
Hand-colored steel engravings

William Henry Bartlett was born in London in 1809 and was apprenticed to John Britton. He traveled widely through North America (1839-1942) and the Middle East (late 1840s) depicting cities and natural wonders with his detailed drawings that were made into etchings and hand-colored (see Ross, Alexander M. - "William Henry Bartlett: artist, author and traveller" - Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 1973). He died at a relatively young age aboard ship returning from Palestine in 1854. Today the etchings based on his original drawings have become well-known and are eagerly sought by appreciative collectors.
