The Artist: Charles Auguste Guillaume Steuben (April 18, 1788 – November 21, 1856), also known as Charles de Steuben, was a German-born French Romantic portrait painter and lithographer active during the Napoleonic Era. 

The Story: In the early 1970's, this print was found in the attic of an old rectory in the Lake Placid, New York area. Because the consignor's father liked it, it was brought home. Other older objects such as dolls and dishes were taken to the dump. 

This print, also noted as being on cardboard, sold at auction in 2012 and 2004 for $900 and $700 (USD) respectfully. On Wall Fiction, we would like to see it sold, hence the listing price of $180.
