Large framed lithograph/photogravure of English cricketer W.G. Grace, shown side-on, carrying a bat, taking his stance at the crease. He wears cricket whites and a striped peaked cap, with gloves and pads. The setting is probably Lord's cricket ground, as the large building in the background is recognizable from other images. The print is signed and dated 1890 in the lower-right. In the margin below the image is the signature of the artist in lead pencil, "ARCH S. WORTLEY", with a picture of a cricket ball next to it, and also the signature of "W.G. GRACE" at the lower centre. In the margin above the print are publishing details - Published Newcastle upon Tyne, 1 May 1891, Mawson Swan & Morgan, 11 Grainger Street West, printed in Berlin. It is housed in an off-white window mount with a five-line border giving the illusion of depth to the framing; black and gold wooden frame., white label "177" handwritten in pencil on reverse.
