Original Antique Orientalist Artist Signed Book Engraving c1845.

By the noted British Orientalist painter John Frederick Lewis (1804-76) is this lovely original book engraving.

Entitled 'Jephtha's Daughter' it depicts a beautiful young woman in a serene pose.

According to the history of the Israelites Jephtha was asked to lead them into battle against the Ammonites. He vowed to offer up to God the first person who approached him after a Victory. Alas it was his daughter. Biblical commentators disagree and some say he offered up an offering and saved his daughter who lived peacefully in the mountains. While others are sure he kept his word and sacrificed her.

Signed by the artist lower left and by the engraver R A Artlett lower right it is a rare and unique piece.

Measuring 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" it is In very good Antique condition. It has a pencil annotation c1845 at the top (removable), a small soil mark mid left margin and a tiny knock top left edge.
