Original antique topographical print


George Cuitt (1779-1854) originated from Yorkshire but settled in Chester. He etched old buildings esp castles and abbeys in Yorkshire, Chester and North Wales. Cuitt studied Piranesi's etchings of Rome and it is clear how much his style is influenced by Piranesi in subject matter and with the ruins covered with thick vegetation. He etched several series of studies in the early 19th century. These were collected and published together under the title of 'Wanderings and Pencillings amongst the ruins of Olden Times' in 1848.
