1870 Ancient Christian Church Mosaics Christ Lithograph - ORIGINAL ARCH

041758_ARCH_044

This is an original 1870 lithograph that shows the beautiful designs of ancient Christian mosaics and drawings. The images include: Mosaic at the Triumphal Arch of St. Paolo fuori le Mura; Mosaic of the Altar-Niche of St. Palo fuori le Mura; Mosaic at the Old Lateran in Rome; Mosaic from the Apse of San Marco at Rome; Mosaics from St. Maria Maggioro at Rome; Byzantine Court-Scene in the Principal Niche of St. Vitale at Ravenna; Wall-Pictures from the Catacombs at Naples; Christ, a Wall-Picture from the Catacombs at Naples; Joshua, a Miniature; Council of Nicaea, a Miniature; Adam and Eve, a Miniature; Mary with the Child, Mosaic.

This lithograph is from a collection detailing the history and beauty of architecture from prehistoric times through the 1800's. Due to the heavy stock of the paper, the original plate emboss can still be viewed in the margins of most lithographs --a rare and highly desirable feature of this art. Our digital capture process enhances the visibility and tone of the foxing; however, in the original pieces the foxing, especially along the edges, is less pronounced. Virtually all foxing is restricted to the outermost margin and would be eliminated when framed.
