Superb engraving with a group of beautiful young women studying geography and history. It appears that the Grim Reaper has abducted one of the girls and is taking her to heaven where a host of angels await in the clouds. The engraving is attributed to B. Picart and dated 1720.
Lovely modern color and fine impression.
