When Baxter published his print the Circassians were a topical subject. They had been fighting their Russian foes for nearly 50 years but their fight appears to have come to an end about ten years later.
By the time Le Blond re-printed from the plate he perhaps felt that although the image was good the title was now not relevant titled his copies as ‘Girl at the Bath’
Le Blond would have signed his print bottom right but in the early years of the 20th century many thousands of prints were slightly trimmed to remove the signature most probably to pass them off as Baxter’s productions. So many must have been removed it is hard to find any Le Blond Baxter’s with Le Blond’s signature still intact.
