Print: Baxter - CL 258 - It is an oval print, printed into a square, it is after a painting by Fitzgerald and shows two young boys in chains. 

 

In 1844 Baxter was going to produce ‘The Abolition of Slavery’ which you can read about here https://www.georgebaxter.com/cl-105-abolition-of-slavery he also printed ‘Me Warm Now’ to publicise the cause. This print further added his support which by then was creating great momentum on both sides of the Atlantic. Whether it sold better in the America I do not know but it is a hard to find print in the UK. The fact that it is not signed and also not in full colour might have meant that over the years it was not so easily recognisable as a Baxter print.

 

The print was produced from a plate and one or two zinc blocks.
