Print: Baxter - CL 357 - Courtney Lewis, in 1924, said that this is after a painting by Landseer showing Lady Rachel Eveline Russell (a daughter of a Duke of Bedford and afterwards wife of Lord J. W. Butler) when six years old.
Having seen an image of the Landseer artwork I can’t see where CL drew that conclusion from but there were rumours at the time that she was actually Landseer’s daughter. Nothing on the printing plate confirms a Landseer’s connection but it would have been a popular subject being taken from the famous children’s tale.
In the bottom plate margin is engraved the title and "Published Dec. 9, 1856, by G. Baxter, Proprietor & Patentee, London". The print was produced from eight blocks, and was originally sold at 1s. 6d.
