George Washington Max Rosenthal Proof
We were very fortunate in winning a few historic prints recently at auction. We have not yet received these but are due in at any time. We are using a watermarked image until we have had time to take our own photos.
The first of which is a rare mezzotint engraving by Max Rosenthal after a painting by Jno Trumbull of a standing George Washington. The engraving was published in 1903 and ours is an artist’s proof signed by Rosenthal. 15 of these were signed. It is a beauty! Is re-marqued with portraits of the painter and engraver. Hand colored. The size is approximately 29.5 x 19.5 so a nice size as well. Some creases and small tears to the margins but the image is clear and bright.
