''A Deep Dream of Peace''. (Leigh Hunt.)
''A Deep Dream of Peace''. (Leigh Hunt.)
Frank Paton. [signed in pencil].
[London: E.C. Leggatt, c.1880.]
Etching, signed by the artist. 200 x 265mm (8 x 10½").
A pair of terrier puppies asleep on a carpet with a ripped-up map of South Africa. The scene is surrounded by satirical vignettes of soldiers in South Africa, returning from war and indulging in sports, including polo, shooting, hunting, racing and coaching. A Victoria Cross is also illustrated. Frank Paton (1856-1909) was a successful artist during his lifetime and could even count Queen Victoria as an admirer of his work. He is perhaps most widely known for his series of etched Christmas cards published annually by Edward Ernest Leggatt from 1880 until Paton's death in 1909. They were intended to be a cut above the average Christmas card and sold for half a guinea each. A number of the prints would be sent from the printers to be signed in pencil by Paton. Between 1880-85 the cards did not have a specific title
