The Temptation of Christ

This is a steel engraving done by W French sc in the late 1800's. It is based on the scriptural story of the temptation of Christ. The colors in this engraving make it look almost like a watercolor. I was told that this is a bookplate, and that was originally in a book. However, I am not an expert in this area, so I don't know for sure. The title is written in both English and German. It is signed L Clausen in the lower left hand corner and is signed W French in the lower right hand corner. When I obtained the print it came shrink wrapped (ugh) in a mat with a carboard backing. The mat and the carboard are included, primarily to protect it during shipping. Sadly this print was mounted with non-archival materials, therefore it has a fair amount of "burn" from the cardboard on the back and around the edges and there is a dark stain on the image itself. I do not know if this can be restored or not.


The actual size of the image is just under 11½ inches high and it is 8¾ inches wide
The size of the image with the mat is 15¼ inches high and 12½ inches wide

I have more photos of this print. If you would like to see them, please send me a convo with your email address and I will send them to you.
