Gleaned from a Smithsonian Institute collection of the botanical works Joseph Prestele and his sons, here is a gorgeous woodland botanical poster lithograph featuring the Beurre D'Aremberg Pear.
The botanical hand-colored engravings were gathered from the world's finest museums, university collections, and private galleries and published by the Smithsonian as a 1984 commemorative book, gifted to members. The heavy, captioned paper measures that perfect framing size of 9" x 12" (16x24 cm) which includes a lovely 2-inch margin for matting.
The paper is smooth and clean, showing very little tanning, with clear and bright lithography, and sharp corners. There are no folds, tears, marks, or creases on the paper. This will be a gorgeous botanical study to frame and fantastic to use in your art - card and tag creations, an embroidery pattern, scrap-book page making, collage.
You are purchasing an original 1984 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
