A Stately Woman being criticized for being outdated

[1860]. An 8" x 5 1/4" color lithograph illustration of a statuesque and proper lady borders by embossed whimsical anthropomorphic heart characters surrounding the margins. It is captioned:

"Stepped from a pedestal to take the air", You'd think she had, she looks so statuesque, Or ancient Heroine from who knows where, Who had a passion for the picturesque "tis idle to compete with Venus de Medici, Put on some Crinoline I do beseech ye!" Originally single-fold, black second page lacking. Paper lacking lower left margin.
