Biographical Text included?
Sorry, original/facsimile biographical text is not available. We have typed up the biographical text (available at and will provide that copy with purchase of the lithograph.
Condition notes
Very good: Under the mount/mat, the margins are somewhat grubby and there are numerous short tears around the edges. There is also one longer tear that extends to just below the caption at the bottom. Despite the flaws in the margin outside of the mat window opening, the lithograph will display very well.
