House of Mr.John L. Batchelder,JR., Brookline, MA,1905,Lithograph. Shepley, Rutan, & Coolidge.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Lithograph of Detail of Triptych, For Prie-Dieu Private Chapel of the Bishop of Rhode Island, overall view. EARLY PHOTOGRAPH. Messrs. Cram, Goodhue & Ferguson (New York Office), Architect(s.) From the American Architect, November 11, 1914. NOTE: we also have a detail view of this Prie-Dieu on eBay from 1914.
This picture is extremely hard to find. The American Architect had a very small circulation during this time and these original lithograph s only appeared in a very limited number of issues that were distributed to a few prominent architects. It measures 8.5 by 12 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole picture measures approximately 12 by 15 inches (with border). Extraordinary detail in this early photographic print. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition with browning around the edges and light crinkling.
This is a highly unusual, scarce item. See our other auctions for more original pictures from this era.
