Hi, This image was printed by publishers extensively after it was first done in 1894 and in general, original paintings would not have paper backing. The medium is likely a chromolithograph. On today's market, depending on size this sells for an average of $40 - $100. You are welcome to send me photos if you like, and that will not cost you extra. ~Nora
