Details

A limited edition 6x8 signed archival print of my original Victorian Hidden Mother watercolor illustration.

Little Alice is part of my Victorian Orphan Portrait series, "The Foundlings".

Who is Alice?

This is the only picture little Alice has of her mother. Unfortunately, it was also the last time her mother held her before dropping her off on the steps of the Orphanage.

Alice, now 18 months old, is a quiet little thing. She is sweet and gives a smile easily. But who will be the first to make her laugh?

Will sweet family adopt her and bring Alice into their happy home or will her mother return and end the mystery of why she left?

Perfect gift for a goth mom, or teenager. Or just about anyone who loves sweet little babies. Great for a nursery too!

The original illustration was created by me (Debra Styer) with watercolor and gouache paints.It was inspired by history and 19th Century Photography.

"Hidden Mother" refers to a 19th Century Photography practice of mothers holding children safely in while their baby's photo was taken. The mothers were then covered up under blankets or drapery. The shape of the mother is still there, but her face isn't.

The artwork on this limited edition print is 6in X 8in and is printed on beautiful archival velvet fine art paper with archival inks.

The print will be shipped to you in a protective sleeve with extra backing in a sturdy flat mailing envelope.

The print includes a lovely antique white mat ready to pop into a 8 x 10 frame.

All prints are signed and numbered.

(Frame not included)

This is a limited edition print of 100.

About the Foundlings Series...

I have always been fascinated by the Victorian era. There are so many dark stories to be told. I am creating a series based on the history of the Foundling Hospitals in New City in the 1800's. The Foundling Hospital was created to help all the children that were abandoned due to hardship and extreme poverty. Some were adopted others became apprentices and learned to take care of themselves. They lived pretty harsh lives. Here are a few of their stories.

Finally got to hang all of these in my new house. An old Victorian house deserves Victorian pictures. And they look awesome! Thanks!

I love the work itself, the colors and such, but my favorite part of Debra Styer's work is the sense of humor that comes through! Makes me happy! I will continue to purchase her work. She is wonderful! Highly recommend.
