[Colour plate] Billmark, Carl Johan
Domkyrkans södra sidoport - Upsala / Porte latérale de la Cathédrale, cote Sud - Upsal.
Imp. Lemercier Paris. 1857-1859. Image area 39 x 27,5 cm. Whole sheet 55,5 x 39 cm. Colour printed lithograph.
An outstanding lithograph. The image depicts beggars outside the side entrance of the cathedral as well as two women being greeted by a soldier. This is one of Billmarks best work, in splendid french colour lithograpy. The plate was printed by Lemercier in Paris, the leading firm in Europe at the time. Billmark was educated at Forsell´s engraving school in Stockholm, but soon turned to lithography, and after settling in Paris developed a brilliant talent. His work has allways been sought after.
