1870 Germany Church Painting Virgin Christ Lithograph - ORIGINAL ARCH4

041737_ARCH4_069

This is an original 1870 lithograph that shows architectural elements of German church paintings including: the Coronation of the Virgin, Wall Painting at the Church of Ramersdorf; Christ on the Cross Fresco and St. Veronica by Master Wilhelm of Cologne; Martyrdom of the Apostle Paul, Glass Painting by Francesco Livida; and Master Stephen's Picture in the Cathedral of Cologne.

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.
