James Fittler (1758-1835) after George Robertson (1748-1788)
North West View of Windsor Castle in the County of Berks (1782)
London: Published by John Boydell
Fittler engraved two views of Windsor by Robertson. Trained at Royal Academy Schools, he was a skilled engraver and etcher and joined the mid-18th century trend for recording the landscape of the British Isles, producing and selling prints to tourists.
A copy of this print is in the National Trust’s collection at Anglesea Abbey, from Lord Fairhaven’s extraordinary collection of views of Windsor Castle.
