After the figure to the right of the composition of the ca. 1815 painting of "Dido and Aeneas" in the Musée du Louvre, Paris.

Directly below the image, at left, is the French inscription identifying the lithographer "Lith[ographie] par Mme. Negelen," opposite the publisher, "Imp[rimerie] lith[ographique] F. Noel."

The larger French text reads: "D'après le tableau de Didon de Monsieur Guérin," or "After the painting of Dido by Mr. Guérin." Smaller text identifies the publisher printer known as Francisque Noël & Cie.:"A Paris, chez Fran.que NOËL et éditeurs, rue des deux portes, École de Médécine, No.7/ No. 22."

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."
