Arthur Szyk lithograph

Object | Accession Number: 2002.113.3.4

The multi-colored lithograph represents Arthur Szyk's conception of the entire history of Great Britain. At the top of the print, St. Edward's crown sits on top of a blue garter, representing the Order of the Garter, which surrounds the Coat of Arms of Great Britain. Flanking the coat of arms is the lion of England and the royal unicorn of Scotland. The Tudor rose, Union Jack, thistle of Scotland, shamrock of Ireland, and daffodil of Wales occur throughout the lithograph. Portraits of an industrial worker and a sailor, scenes of the Houses of Parliament and the Tower of London, and a depiction of St. George, patron saint of England, slaying the dragon fill the bottom.
