1870 Lithograph German Painting Parnassus Mengs Apollo Schick Achilles ARCH3


This is an original 1870 lithograph that shows examples of "modern" German paintings including: Parnassus by Rafael Mengs; Apollo among the Shepherds by G. Schick; Achilles and the Messengers of Nestor by Asmus Carstens; and Job by Eberhard Waechter.

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.


This 141+ year old Item is rated Very Fine / Fine. No creases. No tears. No water damage. There is some light foxing in the margins and two foxing marks in the top image--please see image.
