This 1860 Chromolithograph Print of Dame Nature and Her Messenger is from Thomas Wright's Womankind in Western Europe (from earliest times to the seventeenth century), published by Groombridge and Sons, London. The print, measuring about 8.25" high by 6.25" wide, shows Mother Nature and her messenger dressed in medieval clothing inside a brick-walled garden. The Dame, seen in profile, wears rich rose and blue robes with a black and white fur color and a gold crown-like headdress (similar to the clothing found in portraits of queens and saints of the time). The messenger is in grayed navy blue robes with black wimple and decorative black and gold waist bag. Small black birds sit on the wall and fly in the background, some appearing to emanate from Mother Nature's raised and open hands. The illustration is in shades of rose, royal blue, navy blue, sky blue, grayed pink and two tones of green with shimmering gold accents. The border is a thin shimmering gold line that bursts into golden sprays of curved vines and three petal leaves. "Dame Nature and Her Messenger" is written in thin black block letters on the cream-colored outer border. This 1869 Chromolithograph Print of Dame Nature and Her Messenger is in very good condition with no damage, wear or fading to the front. However, "Dr. Trimmer's Book" is written in black on the back of the illustration.
