A Study in "Line"
Art by Forain
Printed London: 1898; for the Studio
Fine original antique offset photo-mechanical color print.
This particular type of early-20th century color printing process is now essentially extinct as method of reproducing images, rendering this 100 year old printed leaf an interesting original artifact from a past era.
Printed on quality period coated stock paper which may show typical gentle signs of age, perhaps some minor light spotting or foxing. In near Very Good or better antiquarian condition, mostly clean overall, light minor age dustiness or small light surface wear, small spotting -- please inspect enlargeable photo closely, any noteworthy flaws to the printed surface area should be noticeable within picture provided.
In all, a fine image worthy of ownership and display.
[ note: We grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws. We are doing our best to show & describe this item so you are happy when it arrives ].
Despite any small age flaws, the printed area remains visually pleasing, and the print is well preserved.
Overall a nice impression of an original and interesting antique printed image that any collector, curator or institution would be happy to own or display.
