One of my passions is collecting antique prints. Intaglio (engravings), stone lithography primarily, and I have what seems to me now to be an excruciatingly vast number of fine ones. I must frame and list more. This is one 19th century original stone lithography (fine art) print I recently had framed for our home in the Rockies, but I ran out of walls before I ran out of art. I'm going to offer it here, knowing it's one you'll treasure along with me. A stone litho print is an arduously difficult process, the drawing done directly on heavy thick stone that is later inked, buffed, run through a massive printing press to transfer what looks like a pencil drawing onto fine art paper. You can see why they appeal to me, I'm sure. Usually an artist would run no more than 10-20 prints, though if they were for illustrations in a published book, they would run more. This was not a book illustration. This is an artist's print. Might have been 10 in existence, total, and perhaps now it is a one of a kind. Exceptionally appealing subject and an amazing artist talent represented. The artist has signed it in a way that it looks like the grass almost, and it can be found back by the hooves of the hind legs. I can't read it, however. Perhaps you can make it out. Frame is 18.25" x 15.5" x 1" overall.
Very good to excellent condition, framed in wood custom frame and with museum UV glass, museum mat. Top quality. I did it for myself, remember. No damage to the print, which is printed on 100% cotton rag paper from mid-1800s. Very fine quality. Prepare to love it!
