Extraordinary Antique Cat Chromolithographs by Alfred Brunel, the Famous Cat Painter

Brunel Cat Prints! Here is a pair of the best domesticated CAT dog prints I have ever come across.  These large American cat chromolithographs are entitled “Mixing the Colors” and “Anxious Moments.”

Anxious Moments & Mixing the Colors are after the oil paintings of Alfred-Arthur Brunel.  Published 1897 in New York, by the Amlico Publishing Company.  Intended to be sold as decorative artwork for stores and homes alike.   Intense inks were applied, each in it’s own process and sequence.  One color after another.  A limestone plate was specially lithographed for each and every color seen.  Artwork of felines was growing in popularity.  Mixing the Colors & Anxious Moments certainly would be popular in America so Brunel hired Amlico to publish the affordable & large pieces.  Fortunately, some did not sell and I was able to purchase the uncirculated stock of Mixing the Colors & Anxious Moments years ago from Ken Smith, old friend and American antique prints dealer in New Jersey (passed away).  Both are two of the finest examples of cat artwork ever published.

A striking wall of antique American artwork of Cats when hung as a pair.

Each antique cat chromolithograph measures 21 1/2 x 26 1/2″   with intense vibrant coloration.   Minor flaws mostly around the perimeter, which should be expected in large pieces such as these and they were not framed. Click here to contact us.

Whales: Historic Antique Lithographs and Hand Colored Whaling Engravings!

Why do these historic depictions of Whales prior to 1900 exist?

Mankind was in pursuit of whale oil in order for London to keeps it’s streets lit. That ended when people started drilling for oil and developed kerosene. Fortunately, whales and whaling history received a lot of attention in the seventeen, eighteen and nineteen hundreds. Naturalists brought to life with their depictions in the form of book illustrations which were sold by subscription and issued in parts periodically as the work could be printed. These during the 17th, 18th and 19th Century depictions were produced when whaling was critical to world commerce & drawn at the time at the time of the event.

Great genuine paper antiques… from Anne Hall Antique Prints. Thank you for browsing our gallery of Whales: historic antique lithographs and engravings. We sell only authentic old engravings and lithographs, produced in various countries, from the early 1600’s to 1900.  Antique prints of whaling are historically significant to whaling history. These antiques of whales and whaling documented world whaling history which was driven by the desire for street lights.  You have seen many period depictions and scenes of the whaling industry from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries which are historically important today.

How were the Morris antique owl engravings crafted in the 19th century?

FIRST… Original illustrations needed to be procured in the Strix’s natural state, from specimens or by seeing other naturalists work on the subject.  The illustrations were transferred onto boxwood plates which measured about 1″ thick.  Boxwood was an available wood in Great Britain and was easily engravable.  Each slab of wood was carefully engraved with special engraver’s tools known as burins and when the owls-antique engravings were finished to satisfaction, the engravings were ready for printing.  Each engraving was carefully inked up with black ink by a skilled craftsman that operated a printing press. The inked boxwood plate was pressed onto a high quality piece of paper. After the ink dried, the water color illumination was added by hand.

Antique Lithography in Brief

Lithography is an antique printing method. Generally a lithograph was printed in one color. A type of greasy crayon was used to draw onto a special type of limestone, with just the right porosity. After the image was completed, the limestone was emerged into nitric acid, burning away what was not under the greasy crayon, leaving that portion in relief. It was inked up and printed. The image frequently was illuminated with water colors.

Cycas Circinalis Antique Lithograph Palms. Antique lithograph from Belgium, published from 1845-1888. Measurement: 9 3/4 x 12 1/2.

Chromolithography is an antique printing method whereas each color was printed from a key stoned limestone plate. An extended version of lithography, quite laborious requiring a very skilled craftsman to get the registration just right and not distorted. Botanical illustrations done this way were frequently hand finished with water colors and almubin, egg whites or gum Arabic to enhance the image.

18th and 19th Century craftsmen produced these antique prints.

The workmanship required to publish the parrots and toucans by Buffon and Martinet during the 19th Century was astonishing. Every part of production mandated expert craftsmen.  Our old and rare copper plate engravings of parrots were water colored by hand during the years they were published. The paper was difficult to acquire, the engraver would have to re engrave another plate after just 300 strikes, due to the naturally soft surface of the copper plate. The water colorists would die at young ages, due to the toxicity of the water colors, which many contained metals. Yet these old prints still exist in superb fine condition. These old parrot prints have exemplary detail. They have lasted for all these years, primarily due to the high quality of the rag paper. Paper during the 1700’s was literally made of rags, right up through the turn of the 20th Century. Coming from linen, flax, etc, NOT TREES, there was no acid content in the paper. This explains why paper produced in the 20th Century and after, coming from trees, does not last for long.

“Wine Making in California – at work at the wine presses by P. Frenzeny” 1886

This Rare Hand Colored Wood Engraving was Published by Harper’s Weekly in 1886. The vintage in California – at work at the wine presses by P. Frenzeny.  A water colored wood engraving coming from Harper’s Weekly in 1886.   It is considered the best piece ever to be produced on making wine in America.’  It was drawn by P. Frenzeny,  who was hired by Harper’s Weekly in the 1870’s and 1880’s to illustrate the most interesting scenes in the west.  He was considered one of the best western artist of the time.  And this marvelous illustration exemplifies Frenzeny’s work.  He won readership back from the aggressive competitive newspaper owned by Frank Leslie.

Every part of the vintage is shown in explicit detail in this historic antique engraving.

The Wine Making in California engraving reveals that the wine press is being worked manually.  The Chinese immigrants (who previously worked on the railroads, by the 1870’s are working elsewhere, such as this vineyard), are bringing the harvested grapes to be pressed. Grape collection baskets are clearly shown, as well as the huge barrels of wine.  Stomping of the grapes and the wine tasting are clearly shown.  In excellent condition.  This is a pertinent piece of American as well as California wine making history.
