This unusual print was created with a new printing process invented by George Baxter to emulate oil paintings. The print is in very good to excellent condition though not examined outside the frame. The frame is ornate but has a small chip in the upper left side of about 1" length. Dimension: 13 1/2" x 11 1/4" framed Baxter (1804-67) was a prolific English artist whose works are held in many museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York city, and the National Library of Australia which holds an example of this print. The print was published in 1837 in The Cabinet of Paintings. Zenobia was a remarkable Oriental monarch who briefly conquered Egypt and who so impressed Aurelian that he freed her to a private villa where she kept salon for the remainders of her days.
