Strange and intriguing lithographed personification print showing a woman turned into a series of pieces of fruit, including melons, grapes, strawberries, cherries, and more.
This lithograph was made by a series of prints made for Purcell's Lithographic Drawing Book, which now appears to be known in no examples.
The image was lithographed by George E. Madeley after a drawing by George Spratt. Spratt and Madeley made another collection of personification prints, entitled "Figures of Fun."
Original hand-color. Laid on a larger sheet of paper. Very scant foxing.
