The print definition and quality of this print are typical of the 1920 time period. Although it is on a very high grade paper it is still lacking much of the sharp clarity that is available today with offset printing but adds timeless charm to this beautiful print. The colors are as vibrant today as when published over 80 years ago, and offer a glimpse into art created during the early 20th century by one of the premier women artists of the time.
There is only slight yellowing of the paper around the actual image but otherwise this print is in excellent condition coming from a book that was well cared for. The rough edge from the binding has been removed but that is the only "altering" that has taken place (the interior edge has been trimmed). Prints are carefully mounted on mats to simplify framing after purchase and to protect the print during display/shipment. All mat materials are acid and lignin free, the actual print is not archival safe. The original book measured approximately 6-1/2 x 4-1/2” but the book plate is being sold custom matted to fit in an 8x10 standard frame.
