--ABOUT THIS ITEM--
A fine vintage print depicting the old Duke of Wellington showing the field of battle of his greatest victory over the French to the young Queen Victoria, On that occasion views of the battle were presented during an informal picnic. Five exquisitely drawn and engraved horses are also portrayed. The bronze monumental lion may be seen atop the mound in the rear, raised by the Dutch between 1823 and 1826 on the spot where it is believed the Prince of Orange was wounded. The mound required 290,485 cubic meters of earth from the surrounding fields to attain a height of 40.5 meters. Note the fine detail as illustrated in this photograph which concentrates on the young lady's book. The original painting finished in 1850, presently hangs in the Speaker's Guest Room within the British House of Lords, London.
