In the Valley of Shadows Another Fine Quality Print from Martin2001 See the specifics condition notes below. The photos show the print after and before the fold was smoothed out detail. Print Specifics: Type of print: Wood Engraving (Xylograph) - Original antique print Year of printing: not indicated in the print - est. 1890s Artist: Evelyn de Morgan Publisher: Richard Bong, Hanfstaengl, Berlin. Condition: 1-2 (1. Excellent - 2. Very good - 3. Good - 4. Fair) The print was originally folded in the middle by the publisher, making this print unsuitable for framing and display. In order to return this print 'to life,' I carefully smoothed out the fold/crease, touched it up where necessary and applied medium heavy, archival tape on the back of the fold to prevent it from reoccurring. Although it is impossible to completely repair the fold/crease, from a normal distance the fold/crease is virtually indiscernible. Light age toning of paper along the original fold. Dimensions: 13.5 x 20 inches, including blank margins (borders) around the image. 1 inch = 2,54 cm. Paper weight: 3 (1. Thick - 2. Heavier - 3. Medium heavy - 4. Slightly heavier - 5. Thin) Reverse side: Blank Note: Green color around the print in the photos is a contrasting background on which the print was photographed. Narrative: In 'The Valley of Shadows' the Riddle of Life is depicted. A King, in a robe of gold, is standing in front of his crumbling Palace, while his foot still rests upon the neck of a lovely slave. Fame is wandering blind-fold down the Valley, dropping her favours erratically as she moves. Opposite, into the blue and pawning Caverns of Death, a victim, in the pride of his manaood, is about to take the fatal plunge. In the centre, in draperies, a nun-like figure is raising impassioned hands to the deaf heavens where, dim and intangible, there floats the vision of an angelic form.
