A Beautifully Detailed, Original Lithograph of The Illinois Theatre #1, Detail of the Foyer and Proscenium Boxes Chicago, Illinois. EARLY PHOTOGRAPH. Wilson & Marshall, Architect(s.) From the American Architect, February 23,1901. NOTE: we have a series of other excellent views of the ILLINOIS THEATRE on eBay at present.
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.
