SUMMARY:  Print shows an allegory of the restoration of peace and prosperity to America following the Revolution. The print is based on a 1778 painting by British artist Robert Edge Pine, which was destroyed by fire in 1803. It was one of several antimonarchial works painted by Pine during the Revolution. A 1784 catalog of a Philadelphia exhibition of Pine's painting describes it as follows: "A picture painted in the year 1778, representing the following Allegory: America, after having suffered the several evils of war, bewailed its unhappy cause, and lamented over the victims of its fury--her ruined towns--destroy'd commerce, &c. &c. On the appearance of Peace, is represented an extacy of gratitude to the Almighty--Heroic Virtue presents Liberty attended by Concord--Industry, followed by Plenty and her Train, form a group expressive of Population; and Ships denote Commerce." America, on the left, is a bejeweled Indian Queen robed in furs. Above her, the figure of Peace, holding an olive branch, appears from the clouds. Heroic Virtue (center) is represented by Hercules; Concord holds bundled fasces, Industry a beehive, and Plenty a cornucopia.
