Subject:     Historic Shakespeare Engravings For Sale


I am the authorized sales representative for the Messenger Art Collection, an iconic, 100-year-old art collection which was acquired by a new owner in June 2010.


The artwork in the collection was originally acquired for use in advertising and promotion 1940-1960, and now selected works are being made available for sale.  An eclectic mix of more than 5,000 works of art comprise this collection - historic paintings and engravings, pinups, wildlife, biblical works and illustrations.  Samples of this massive collection are available for viewing:


The Shakespeare Portfolio (please see attached pdf) is a stunning collection published by John Boydell in London 1791-1802.  The renowned engraver-publisher and gallery owner conceived of this collection in 1786.  He issued many prints of all kinds—topography, history, and reproductions of old masters — but his greatest undertaking was the Shakespeare Gallery, which is exquisite.   


We are pleased to offer a collection of 32 original engravings from the 18th Century.  An online presentation may be viewed at:  The attached pdf contains details about these artworks and the history of the collection.  I would be pleased to provide pricing and answer questions that you may have and I would be happy to arrange for a private viewing at the collection’s headquarters in Santa Fe, New Mexico should this be of interest.  Thank you, I look forward to your response.
