Mount Cook

56 x 44 cm (22 x 17 inches).

This is an antique lithograph by Charles Barraud and was made in 1877. Barraud's illustrations are regarded as some of the most important early images of New Zealand land scapes. The lithographs are of considerable historic interest and are now very rare. Barraud was a founder member of the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts and its first president. This is an authentic antique, not a reproduction. Very good condition. The colors are bright vibrant, amazing considering it is over 130 years old. The mounting paper has a few dots of foxing. The lithograph is mounted on the original paper it was laid down on. If you look carefully you can see the tiny little lines the lithographer used to align the lithograph on the mounting paper.
