Jerrad, Paul: Pineapple
Paul Jerrad London c1850
original hand coloured lithographed, high-lightened with Gum Arabic, in acid free mount. image size 23 x 33 cm, mount size 40 x 50 cm. text printed on verso is not related to the print. excellent condition.
Beautifully compositioned lithographed print with very fresh colouring - the photos just don’t do it justice! The central image is surrounded by a gold printed border, depicting branches and various fruit. This print was lithographed and published by Jerrad in ‘Gatherings of the Orchards’; the book is quite rare and prints seldom are being offered for sale on the open market.
This print depicts a pineapple, roses, butterfly and moth, and a robin.
