DESCRIPTION

Fine steel engraving art print from a famous painting by a known artist.  Published by Virtue in London in about 1840.

A steel engraving is a print that was made using an engraved steel printing plate. In printing, to engrave means to carve a pattern in a printing plate. The basic process is to engrave the image on a metal plate, apply ink to the plate, wipe it so the ink only remains in the engraved lines, then press it onto paper to produce a print of the image. Using engraving, an artist can make either highly detailed images or images with a sketchy quality, depending on the number and thickness of the engraving lines.

CONDITION

This steel engraving is in very good condition.  The image is about 10 1/2" x 7" on a page that is about 13" x 9 1/2".
