Antique Original Vanity Fair Lithograph Print of General De Wet, July 31, 1902. Caption reads: " De Wet " Christiaan Rudolf de Wet ( 1854 – 1922) was a South African Boer general, rebel leader and politician.
Vanity Fair was a British weekly magazine published from 1868 to 1914. Founded by Thomas Gibson Bowles, it offered its readership articles on fashion, current events, the theatre, books, social events and the latest scandals. A full-page, color lithograph of a contemporary celebrity or dignitary appeared in most issues, and it is for these caricatures that Vanity Fair is best known today.
Print measures approximately 10 1/2" x 15 1/2". It is in good condition with a paper clip impression in the upper margin that slightly extends into the image, staples holes and small chips in the margins. Most all should cover when matted. Print and will mat and frame nicely. Please see all photos.
