Signed on the stone at upper left. Jackson became interested in lithography during his time as an art student in Paris in the 1890s, but on his return to London found that most lithographs there were being produced not by artists, but by commercial presses. He opened the first studio devoted to teaching lithography to artists. He also taught them how to print their own work, which he considered essential to the medium. This lithograph, a portrait of the artist’s wife, was exhibited in the Paris Salon of 1909.

Pictorial works produced by transferring images by means of a matrix such as a plate, block, or screen, using any of various printing processes. When emphasizing the individual printed image, use "impressions." Avoid the controversial expression "original prints," except in reference to discussions of the expression's use. If prints are neither "reproductive prints" nor "popular prints," use the simple term "prints." With regard to photographs, prefer "photographic prints"; for types of reproductions of technical drawings and documents, see terms found under "reprographic copies."
