About this Item

A rare, large FINE lithograph from the The Graphic Christmas Number, 1882, depicting a child in her sick-bed on Christmas Day, receiving a gift from mother and daughter visitors. "Love one another" is written on the bed canopy and there is a clear sense of concern being shown for someone less fortunate than the visitors. The medical chart on the bed-end is headed: Dr. Fred Taylor. There are other delightful details in this quality illustration of charity and compassion. The image measures 12 in. by 9 in. with generous margins. The Evelina Hospital for Sick Children was founded in 1869 by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild whose wife Evelina had died during premature labour along with her child. Nationalised in 1948, it became a branch of Guy's Hospital and the building closed in 1978. The painter, C.J. Staniland was born in Kingston-upon-Hull and was a prolific illustrator, including works by G.A. Henty. His most famous painting was "The Emigrant Ship". A rare illustration in excellent condition and a touching and technically accomplished picture. 40% price reduction applied. Bookseller Inventory # 000641
