This 1869 Chromolithograph Print of The Lady Venus Receiving the Messenger of L'Amour is from Thomas Wright's Womankind in Western Europe (from earliest time to the seventeenth century), published by Groombridge and Sons, London. The print, measuring about 8.25" high by 6.25" wide, shows a standing Lady Venus receiving small written pages from a kneeling messenger. Three other figures (one kneeling and two standing) witness the exchange. All are dressed in medieval clothing (although the text references Roman mythology) and appear to be in a throne room with a wooden platform and decorative blue canopy. Clear lead glass windows light the scene. The word "Venus" is written in gold Gothic letters on the back of the throne. The illustrations is largely in shades of blue and gray with accents of rose, green, brown and shimmering gold. There are two simple thin dark brown borders around the image. The words "The Lady Venus Receiving the Messenger of L'Amour" are written in thin black block letters on the cream-colored outer border. This 1869 Chromolithograph Print of The Lady Venus Receiving the Messenger of L'Amour is in very good condition with no damage, wear or fading.
