1870 Ancient Christian Sculptures Paintings Lithograph - ORIGINAL ARCH4

041709_ARCH4_041

This is an original 1870 lithograph that shows the beautiful designs of ancient Christian sculptures and paintings. The images include: Bronze Statue of St. Peter; Sarcophagus-Reliefs; Fragment of a Bishop's Chair; Christ as the Good Shepherd; Birth of Christ; Sarcophagus of Junius Bassus; Adam and Eve; Fresco from the Catacombs; Christ in the Temple.

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.
