This antique lithograph of butterflies is by Henry Humphreys. It is over 155 years old and has very high quality original hand coloring. These prints are particularly decorative as they show the butterflies on the wild flowers and plants they inhabit. The images of the butterflies swirling around flowers and plants evokes calm and peaceful summer days. This is a genuine antique, not a reproduction. It has hand painted coloring and is in very good condition. It is from the rarer, larger version of Humphrey's work. Later editions of his prints of butterflies were smaller and lower quality.
