1870 Lithograph France Church Architecture Arles Caen - ORIGINAL ARCH

004392_Arch_051

This is an original 1870 lithograph that shows architectural elements of Frenchchurch architecture including: the Church of Notre Dame la Grande at Poitiers; the Cathedral of Angouleme; the Portal of the Cathedral at Arles; the Church of St. Martin at Angers; Arcades of the Cathedral at Bayeux; the Church of S. Savin; and the Church of St. Etienne at Caen.

This lithograph is from a collection detailing the history and beauty of architecture from prehistoric times through the 1800s. Due to the heavy stock of the paper, the original plate emboss can still be viewed in the margins of most lithographsÑa 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.
