George Baxter paintings were often produced as prints as he was one of the first multicolor printmakers of the 19th century. Having grown up in Lewes, England with a publisher father and working as a wood engraver for a printing press, Baxter got exposure to the creative world early on. He created his first color print in 1828, and proceeded to produce prints mainly for use in books as illustrations. It wasn't long before George Baxter's artwork reached the Palace, and Prince Albert asked him to draw at the coronation of Queen Victoria.
George Baxter's paintings are mainly portraits in oil or watercolor and were used for children's books, sheet music, and needle boxes. George Baxter prints value at around $300-500.
