Mid-19th Century Original George Baxter Oil Portrait Print of the Duke of Wellington with "Arms" in Original Frame

This is a splendid original Baxter oil print of the Duke of Wellington "with arms" in a black painted frame with gilt trim, circa 1850-1860. Baxter also did the Duke "without arms". The image measures 3 ½” x 2 ¾”; frame 6 3/8” x 5 5/8”. George Baxter (1804-67) born at Lewes, the son of a printer, was himself a printer, publisher, artist, and inventor. He is best known for the invention of colour printing and for some 300 coloured prints he issued between 1835 and 1860. He patented a process which involved making a wood or metal block for each colour impression in addition to a steel plate engraving. His prints were published on stamped mounts, or on mounts with lettering or red seals. Occasionally they were without mounts and some were printed for book illustration. There is some minor damage to corners of the original frame.
