[Munich, Germany, c.1819.]
Sepia-tinted lithograph heightened in white, printed on watermark Hof paper, sheet 425 x 470mm. 16¾ x 18½".
Impressive imagined view of the candlelit interior of Saint Margaret's church in Nuremberg, Bavaria, Germany, in medieval times; churchgoers at prayer in period costume in the nave, priest at the altar in background. By Italian-born artist and printmaker Domenico Quaglio (1786 - 1837) who settled in Munich in the late 18th century, and was appointed Court Painter for Architectural Scenery in 1808. This seems to be for the series 'Königlich Baierischer Gemälde-Saal zu München und Schleissheim in Steindruck'.
