Book Description

A large wooden steam-pressed portrait of Gordon, approx. 30 x 42 cm., contained as issued within a heavily ornate dark wood frame with floral designs, overall size 50 x 65 cm.; small 5mm. chip at foot of portrait, rear wooden panel encasing portrait split, else in very good condition.
Dealer Notes
A full-length portrait, in wood, of Gordon in uniform, standing beside ruined walls against a background of trees and shrubs. This splendid, albeit typically Victorian, commemorative piece catered to the demand for images of the General following his death at Khartoum in 1885. Unlike many smaller commemorative pieces, this striking and large portrait would have been destined for wealthier enthusiasts, and relatively few may exist.
Author [Gordon, Charles George, Gordon of Khartoum.]
Date 1885
Binding None
Publisher N.p., n.d.
Condition Very good.
