A 6x8 signed archival print of my original Victorian Inspired hand painted watercolor painting.

Nicolas, Age 9, Factory Worker, Victorian Orphan

Nicolas misses the sun. He work from sun up to sun down everyday and dreams of days off. Days that he can frolic in the countryside and play with all the little animals that would live there. He dreams of getting away from the filth of the city and living on farm where the air is clean and he can breath.

Nicolas also dreams of finding a family that will love him and take care of him. (His real family left him at an orphanage when he was a baby.)

Will anyone ever take him away from his long working days at the factory? Will he have lots of brothers and sisters and animals to play with? A loving father and mother? Maybe someone will see him and take a chance on this lovely little boy before it's to late and all his dreams are gone...

The original illustration was created by me (Debra Styer) with watercolor and gouache.

The artwork on this limited edition print is 6in X 8in and is printed on 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.

This is a limited edition print of 100.

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 and London 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.
