Universitetet / The University / L´université

(Copenhagen) About 1860 Image area 18 x 27 cm. The whole sheet 25,5 x 31,5 cm. Hand coloured lithograph (unclear when the colouring was executed).

A couple of small repaired tears and a couple of minor creases to the margins.

A fine view of the Copenhagen University. The great artist Alexander Nay executed both the original drawing and the lithograph. He made some wonderful work in Germany, his native country, but also executed excellent plates to some of the major 19th. century plate books of Denmark and Sweden. A few swedish examples are "Sverige Framstäldt i Taflor" 1856, "Herregårdar uti Södermanland" 1869 and "Uplands Herregårdar" 1881 and "Upsala" in 1870 and 1877.
