A mezzotint and stipple engraving of Richard Westall's Thine is the Kingdom the Power and the Glory showing four angels floating amongst clouds. The angels are all looking off to the left in an inquisitive nature where a beam of light is breaking through the clouds. The angels have long flowing waves of hair and heavily draped robes.
Richard Westall (1765-1836) was a British artist most famed for his history paintings. He was apprenticed to a heraldic silver engraver in London in 1779 before studying at the Royal Academy Schools from 1785. He exhibited at the Academy regularly between 1784 and 1836, became an Associate in November 1792 and was elected an Academician in 1794.
