Such prints were effectively reproductions of paintings. See American Indian art and dance.Rebecca Coleman (American artist), Raphael Tuck Company (publisher), A Glad New Year, Good Angels Guard Thee, a chromolithographed greeting card for the 1881-2 holiday season. This card's design was one of seven derived from a series of seven angel paintings by Coleman titled "Angel's Heads". The cards were very popular. On each of the seven designs, Tuck added a different message and verse. The verse on the back of this card: I stand in the New Year light And I look towards the Sun, And I see through the aether bright & fair, and Angelic one! Tis Hope, tis the Morning Star!
