Abstract :
Today, Philip Cornman is best known for his massive silver centerpieces and similar work made for Rundell, Bridge and Rundell. However, he also worked as an engraver, printer, print seller and dealer in paintings and drawings, a wax modeler, and jeweler. As a result of documents discovered at Castle Howard, it is now possible to demonstrate a direct link between Cornman and architect Charles Heathcote Tatham. Thanks to the chance discovery of a set of perspective pictures signed by Cornman (back-painted glass with carved-wood and painted foregrounds), it is also possible to cast some light on his talents as an artist. ;
