I have owned several fine chromolithographs in my life all of which amaze me in their beauty and skill. This example by C..Becker is one of the best of the best.The initial technique by Becker involved the use of multiple lithographic stones, one for each color on this print. You can also see where he used two hair paint brushes to complete this masterpiece. It is nearly impossible to tell if this is not an actual painting and I came very close to being convinced it was.
