Currier and Ives original Grist Mill lithograph
The printmaking firm of Currier & Ives produced some of the most iconic and popular American art of the 19th century. The company, headed by Nathaniel Currier (1813-1888) and James Merritt Ives (1824-1895), specialized in publishing hand-colored lithographic prints that were sold inexpensively to the growing American middle class.
