This work is one of a small collection of images we have for sale taken from Victorian popular culture. Encompassing such wide ranging subjects as botanical and animal studies, nautical scenes, landscapes, and military subjects, they come in an equally intriguing array of media, including hand painted lithographs, paper collage on lace paper, and watercolour. With many worked to a small and intimate scale, these works represent the refined Victorian taste for scenes of simple beauty, taste and colour.
