Northampton Square, London. George Baxter. Circa 1852.
FIVE Baxter color prints, four 5 x 9 1/4 inches tipped onto stiff cards approx 8 1/2 x 13 inches, one 5 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches on card 10 x 16 1/4 inches. Baxter blindstamp at lower center of each. Abrasions and adhesive residue to verso of each card, foxing to cards of Nos. 1 and 4, creasing and edge tears to card of larger print, light; tipped on prints in very good condition. Five richly colored and detailed prints depicting scenes from the Great Exhibition of 1851. In the four "Gems of the Great Exhibition" prints, visitors admire statuary in front of various country departments. "The Great Exhibition Interior" offers a view of the central hall with trees and fountain. Baxter himself had a stand in the Fine Arts Court. The printing process that Baxter patented (in 1835) involved color printing from wood blocks using oil instead of water of ink. "From 1843 onwards, till the time he discontinued business in approximately 1860, Baxter produced mainly reproductions of paintings for decorative purposes, and this is the period in which we find not only the finest subjects, but also his finest work."
