[Plate] Hallbeck, C. S. / Nay, A.

Kramfors [published for "Sverige Framstäldt i Taflor"]

D. F. Bonniers förlag. Em. Baerenzen & C. lith. Inst. Ca. 1850-56. 25 x 31,5 cm. Tinted lithograph.

A couple of minor creases and spots in the margins. Nice condition.

A charming view of the small town of Kramfors in northern Sweden. Several ships on the bay beyond. Lithographed by Alexander Nay after an original by Carl Svante Hallbeck. The artist Hallbeck was commissioned by Bonnier (the publisher of "Sverige Framstäldt i Taflor") to draw 40 originals from the northern provinces of Sweden. They were delayed by years and some of them were never delivered. In the last installment of the work Bonnier complained bitterly on Hallbeck´s lack of work ethic. The artist hit back by writing a newspaper article attacking Bonnier. Nay was a very able and productive artist. He lithographed several important plate books in Sweden and Denmark
