Print Description

The Cyder Feast by Edward Calvert - c.1850.

In September 1818 Palmer wrote to George Richmond that 'Mr Calvert I found... finishing with surprising rapidity... a beautiful and luxuriant design of the cider pressing: a wood-engraving'. The subject may contain memories of apple harvests that Calvert had perhaps witnessed during his childhood in the cider country of Western England. It's theme, as for most of Calvert's prints, is the fertility and abundance of nature. Earlier states of the print were inscribed with the words 'By the Gift of God in Christ'. However Calvert later removed them, thus helping reinforce the essentially pagan character of the subject. - Tate
