Print circa 1884 showing explorer Christopher Columbus at the Royal Court of Spain. Columbus (circa 1451 - 1506) is depicted making a request for financial backing for his voyages of exploration to Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand in front of assembled courtiers. Columbus, a Genoese navigator, famously reached the Americas on October 12 1492 after securing the necessary funding. He landed on a small island in the modern day Bahamas and named it San Salvador. Print by Mast, Crowell and Kirkpatrick, based on a painting by artist Vaclav Brozik (1851 - 1901).
