Fine Art Vintage Print Reproduction from a American Encyclopedia from the early 20th century.

"The Struggle of the Slav" by John Pughe

The caption reads EXCILE, OPPRESSIVE TAXATION, RELIGIOUS INTOLERANCE, GOSSACKISM, INCOMPETENCE, GREEN, GRAFT, and finally BUREAUCRACY on the octopus trying to drown the sailor.

Interesting note - This is not chromolithography but a photomechanical print.

"A photomechanical print is a mechanical reproduction of a photo image that is printed in ink, often by a printer's press. Photomechanical prints are not the product of a photographic process; their supports are not light-sensitive, and light plays no direct role in image production. Instead, the image has been impressed or transferred mechanically from a inked plate or other surface, which has been created using a photographic negative as its image source. Unlike photographic prints, photomechanical prints generally do not display signs of image fading. With the exception of the woodburytype, they can be identified by distinctive patterns under magnification."

The colours are gorgeous reproducing this print with modern photolithography using pigment (japanese archival inks).

Available in standard A4, A3, and A2 sizes

MEASUREMENTS: (A4 - 21 x 30 cm / A3 30 x 40 cm / A2 40 x 60 cm)
