From The Ada Picture Gallery.

Evelyn Silva scanned this from a picture she found "in the trash" in Louisiana, USA, and submitted it to the Ada Picture Gallery in October 2000. She wrote: On the bottom of the picture it says "LONDON PUBLISHED NOV 1 1838 FOR THE PROPRIETORS, No 18 & 19 SOUTHAMPTON PLACE, EUSTON SQUARE, NEW ROAD". In the lower left corner it says "Printered by Mc Queen". On the lower right of the picture its "Engraved By W. H. Mote". On the left "Drawn by A.E. Chaton R.A.". There was also a page with a bio on it. This was not in a book when I found it, it was loose along with some other Ladies of the Queens court. So I don't have any other info on it. It is an original print from its time, not a reproduction.

William Henry Mote did the etching, and this was colored with paint by hand, this is not uncommon in the mid 1800's. Also note, William Henry Mote also had his etching shop on New Road as was mentioned in the London post office journal in 1841. This is an example of art for the masses, or common art which became mass produced in England in the 1800's. However, even so, William Mote was one of the six or so etchers commonly mentioned in the release of a new book, and he did portraits of royalty for books of the day. Now that we have cameras, we dismiss the lifelike qualities of his craft.
