Lithograph edited at 50 exemplars only
Handsigned & numbered edition.
From an original drawing from John William Waterhouse of 1904 & for the first time in the world in lithograph.
This drawing, representing John William Waterhouse’s most famous one,
has been presented partially cut for quite a long time.
Some old photos found recently, have proved that it was not always the case.
For the first time ever, the lithograph shows this drawing entirely
as it was drawn by Waterhouse in 1904.
From the drawing to its printing, this lithograph has been entirely realized by hand.
With the same technical and artistic constraints, the same moves are made on the very same period machines.
Drawing on stone, printing colour by colour on "Marinoni Voirin" lithographic flat press of 1920.
