Rhoda Holmes Nicholls Roses Print Art Interchange Brett Litho.
This wonderful antique half yard long chromolithograph print is by the Victorian artist Rhoda Holmes Nicholls. It is a lovely depiction of watercolor roses, delicate pink blooms in a tall crystal handled vase. The title at the bottom is Pink Roses, dated 1903. In Victorian times, the pink rose symbolized that the bearer was An Ambassador of Love. The artwork is just beautiful, much better than the photos show. Please note that the background is a bit lighter than shown, with not as much tan in it. This print was made as an Art Supplement for the Art Interchange Magazine of New York. The publishing house was Brett Lithographic Company. It is a half yard long and measures 11 x 17 1/8 inches. The color layers align in perfect register. Please note, some of the whiter areas in the print are part of the watercolor process, not color missing. The print is in VG condition, with just a slight mended tear at the lower right area by the signature and a very tiny color lift at the capital letter R in Rhoda. Most definitely a one of a kind antique print, as we've only had it just the one time. THE COPYRIGHT WATERMARK IS NOT ON THE PRINT.
