I really don’t have much art on my walls. I tend to like hanging plates, mirrors and decorative items instead. My hubby always says I have the strangest taste in art work. I happen to love this piece but he said it was just weird. I want to hear what you think.
The piece is a signed and dated Chromolithograph. For those not familiar with this type of artwork it is basically a copy of an original work that has been hand colored. The process was developed by F. Tugh Farber around 1895 and each piece could take up to a year to complete. The price of oil paintings were so expensive during this time only the wealthy could afford them. Farber invented this process to make art more affordable. Normally the company would make anywhere between one to one hundred copies.
