This is the Signed original Gouache painting by William Francis Phillipps.

William Caxton was an English merchant, diplomat, writer and printer. He is thought to be the first Englishman to introduce a printing press into England, in 1476, and was the first English retailer of printed books. He is seen here showing a priest some Bible verses in English, he was probably the first person to have the Bible translated and printed in English.

A wonderful large painting of this momentous event by William Francis Phillips. No defects at all and cleverly signed on the edge of the print block (lower left).

Published in Look and Learn #996 11th April 1981.
