Stacpoole, Frederick (1813-1907; English), after Rivière, Briton (1840-1920; English)
Engraving, 45.3 x 62.3 cm (image)
Donated by William Agnew, 1876
National Gallery of Victoria (p.182.5-1)

One of the prints after Rivière donated in 1876, all signed by both painter and print-maker. This particular impression is stamped at lower left (“Printseller’s Association: XDC”).

A version of the original painting on which this print was based, dated 1870, was sold recently. An exemplary Victorian image, it shows a young woman, barefoot in the snow, sharing her meagre meal with two dogs.
