[Munich: J. Stuntz, c.1820.]
Tinted lithograph. Printed area 370 x 280mm (14½ x 11") Some slight spotting in margin.
A portrait of either of two brothers: Hans Sebald Lautensack (1524-c.1560), a painter and etcher; or Heinrich Lautensack (1522-1590), a painter, collector and goldsmith. This print was published in 'Les Oeuvres Lithographiques', a huge series of reproductive plates of paintings, by Johann Nepomuk Strixner (1782 - 1855) and Ferdinand Piloty (1786-1844). Their work did much to popularise lithography, as they showed the technique could achieve all the same effects as other engraving techniques.
