I don't have a clue, but it might be a poster or a stamp.
I think I've seen it somewhere, but can't remember where.
All ideas welcome.

I know this painting well
It lives in my local museum
It's call the Orrery and the artist was Joseph Wright.
You need to see the full picture to get the full effect.
Because of copyright it's hard to find a good image of it.
Here's a couple more painted in the same style

No problem
Here's a half decent pic of it.
If your ever in Derby it's worth taking a look at it
