Thomas Frye "Fancy Heads Series



Thomas Frye was a painter, print-maker, and one of the earliest porcelain manufacturers in Britain. This series of mezzotints was meant to demonstrate the artist's skill and versatility in representing a variety of poses and expressions. I am so impressed at how he was able to make such delicate skin and fabric with such a mono tone palette. Even the pearls seem to shine.
