Description

Chromolithograph with some hand-colouring, depicting Erin as a woman dressed in a white gown patterned with shamrocks and a green cape, with a shamrock garland on her head. She carries a golden harp and stands by the sea as the sun rises. This is an idealised image of Ireland, and is in keeping with the aesthetics of the Gaelic Revival. Walter Crane (1845-1915) was an English artist and influential children's book illustrator, active in the Arts & Crafts movement.
