[Landscape with figures by lake, and rowing boat]
Large Pen lithograph, very scarce, sheet 305 x 380mm (12 x 15"). Slight stain spots in centre; two very samll holes at top.
Early pen lithograph. The new medium allowed artists to draw directly onto a prepared stone, allowing them to make prints which arguably resembled drawings more than any earlier printmaking technique. Unlike many printmaking techniques, lithography required no special training as artists could work directly onto the plate and leave specialist printers to actually make the prints. For this reason many artists who were not trained printmakers (such as Géricault and Delacroix) often worked in lithography.
