Description: Original master print. Our definition of a Master Print is a seperately published print or series of prints, not being an illustrative print to a text. These can both be prints made by old masters (artists) or prints made by others (artists, engravers, etchers) after old masters. Age estimate: 1865.

Artists and Engravers: Engraved by Thielley after Heg. Vetter. Claude Thielley (1811-1891) was a French printermaker, painter and lithographer from France. Jean Hegesippe Vetter (1820-1900) was a French painter, who painted the original piece in 1861.
