Published in 1835. Hand colored stone lithograph folio print, drawn by the noted Swiss artist Joseph Brodtmann.
Stone lithography was the first printmaking technology that allowed a traditional artist to work using traditional techniques, and to create prints that could rival an original painting in terms of detail, mood and color variations.
