Something different from the usual for my 100th post!
So just picked this up from my local Charity Shop (Thrift Store) for £5. I had no idea what it was or who it was by, but just fell in love with it.
It does not appear to be offset 4 colour print, so is it a Lithograph??
Well I've discovered that it is not a lithograph. It is a Collotype, kind of related to traditional Lithography in that it is a form of printing from a flat surface, but that is where the similarity ends.
Interesting video on Collotype process : http://www.benson.readandnote.com/videos/collotype
The colours are fabulously vibrant and there is no obvious fading at all. It is in overall superb condition. Reproduced in 1926 by The House of Art, New York.
It's perhaps a little unusual to find a print by this artist here in the UK?
It is large and on a similar scale to the original (22" x 35").
The size of mine is 18" x 30" (image view. not frame)
