Circa 1850 American lithograph by James Baillie in style of Currier and Ives

Circa 1850 lithograph with hand coloring, titled at bottom "The Flight into Egypt", published by the noted American lithographer James Baillie. Baillie began his career in the late 1830's as a picture framer in New York City, and then worked as a colorist for the Currier and Ives firm. By 1843 or 1844 he had struck out on his own, producing a wide range of lithographed images in the style of his former employer. At first glance most of Baillie's product looks like a Currier; only close inspection of the text reveals the print to be by a different publisher. Evidently Baillie also collaborated with two other, Sowle and Shaw, of New Bedford and Boston, in the production of these widely distributed images. This example is framed behind non-glare glass in an inexpensive modern frame. Measurements are 12 3/4" by 9 1/4" (18 1/2" by 14 1/2" as framed). Condition appears to be excellent, with just a few foxing marks. SEE HUNDREDS OF OTHER WORKS OF ART NOW IN MY SHOP.
