Portrait of James Gibbs (Jacobus Gibbs Architectus), 1895. Colored Illustration.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Illustration of Architect James Gibbs (Jacobus Gibbs Architectus). Hand Colored. Artist Unknown. From the American Architect, April 20, 1895.
This picture is extremely hard to find. The American Architect had a very small circulation during this time and these original lithographs only appeared in a very limited number of issues that were distributed to a few prominent architects. It measures 8.5 by 11.75 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole picture measures approximately 12 by 16 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.
