Hand-Coloured Photogravure 2 [After Archibald Thorburn]

Regular price £95.00 Sale price £25.00

DESCRIPTION

A hand-coloured photogravure after a work by the highly regarded Scottish artist Archibald Thorburn (1860 - 1935). Thorburn was considered to be the greatest bird illustrator of his generation. 

This particular piece dates to around 1890 and has been framed by Hills and Saunders of Cambridge. A sticker on the back displays an address, which is presumably the original owner of the artwork.

We obtained this work along with another three prints after Thorburn, so its plausible that this one was also purchased from the London Illustrated News before being taken to the framers. Back in 1890, the newspaper would produce prints using a single plate before colour was applied by hand.

Alternatively, it may've been purchased from Hills and Saunders directly.

Framing

If the images display the artwork framed, then the frame is included in the price. For those that are unframed, we can handle the framing for you should you wish. We always try to source frames that are appropriate for the age of the painting but can also provide contemporary alternatives if you prefer. You only pay for the cost of the actual frame (usually £30 - £50) as we include the labour for free.
