This lithograph was created on Hand drawn plates which are hand pulled, one colour at a time, in perfect registration on Coventry cotton rag paper and printed on an antique 19th century German Dufa printing press. It provides highly pigmented inks that will resist fading and preserve the integrity of the print for more than a lifetime. This process is the most elaborate, costly and effective way to reproduce art while maintaining the brilliance and accuracy of the original creation.
THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST PRICE YOU WILL FIND ANYWHERE FOR THE SAME PIECE!
