Description Mounted hand-coloured lithographic transformational print, 283 x 225 mm., with mounted label below. 'On raising this Print against the light all the changes of light & shade are produced from the brilliancy & sunshine of Noon, to the darkness & obscurity of Midnight.. A fire becomes kindled by which the Bandits appear warming themselvesā€¦ the sun sunk beneath the Horizon, the Moon supplies its place, the lights from the distant Convent reflect with trembling motion on the surface of the water; gratifying the Spectator with one of the most perfect and pleasing illusions that can be imagined. The effect is seen best by candlelight.' Some browning and spotting, else very good.
