Print: Le Blond LB 160 – Originally published by Baxter as CL 269 where the full title is Short Change (after J. Collinson, Esq.)
James Collinson was a fellow student with Holman Hunt and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and one of the original seven brothers of the pre-Raphaelite School.
The print shows the elderly lady querying the amount of change she has been given with the boy trying to hide a whistle in his pocket
Le Blond would have signed this print but so many LBB’s had LB’s signature trimmed in the late 1800’s. Low down on the left is "J. Collinson, Esq., pinx” but this like LB’s signature has been trimmed or is it covered by the over mount?
You can tell this is a Le Blond version as the can on the cupboard is grey in this print where it is uncoloured in Baxter’s version.
