In honor of our 20th anniversary, we wanted to highlight chromolithography, a type of antique print that we feel receives less attention than is warranted by the interest and beauty of the material. Chromolithographs come in all sizes and prices, and we have a excellent selection shown on-line, as well as others in our inventory. We hope our web visitors will enjoy this exhibit and perhaps will be able to visit us in our shop or at one of many fine antique shows we attend around the country.
There are many excellent references that discuss chromolithographs, but we are especially indebted to Peter C. Marzio's superb work, The Democratic Art. Much of the material in this exhibit was inspired by his seminal reference on American chromolithographs.
