The Mountain Stream. (Indians reposing).

The Mountain Stream. (Indians reposing).

London: George Baxter, 1856. A large Baxter print, signed in the image Feby. 25, 1856, by G. Baxter, Proprietor & Patentee London. 27.7 x 37.4 cm. Baxter's number 143 lists the publication as Feby. 25, 1855, with a note that there are prints with other dates. Courtney Lewis 346. A gorgeously dense, tropical landscape; the stream is shown running along a rocky bed strewn with debris of fallen timber and huge stones. Two women rest on an outcrop to the right, dressed in sarong-like garments with only one breast covered, with a baby. The vegetation is very tropical, with palms, exotic flowers, banyan type tree roots and ferns, which, combined with the effect of the scantily-clad women, suggests an idealized South Pacific scene. Mounted on card, but not a Baxter mount. At some point in the past, a framing mount was glued to the face of the card, and there is residue from this marking the card, and the very edges of the printed surface. Otherwise in very nice condition. Item #13024
