A scene from Milton's Paradise Lost': Sin interposes herself between Satan and his son Death to stop them attacking each other, revealing their relation to each other.

Samuel Ireland owned an impression and produced a copy in 1788, on which he stated 'only three impressions were taken' from the original plate.

A Tigress.
A Tigress.
Engraved by John Murphy by Permission of Mr. George Stubbs from the Picture Painted by himself and in his Possession.
London, Published July 27, 1798 by J. Murphy, North side Paddington Green.
Coloured mezzotint. Sheet 490 x 610mm (19¼ x 24"). Trimmed to platemark. Very slight hole above Tiger's head.
A beautiful example of colouring of the famous image. Very rare mezzotint, showing a recumbent tigress, probably engraved from the life-size portrait of the Royal Tiger in Stubbs's possession when he died. The painting had originally been engraved by John Dixon in 1772; however that mezzotint plate had been destroyed, so John Murphy was allowed to engrave a new plate. One of the finest images produced in the history of mezzotint.
