[Colour plate] Billmark, Carl Johan
Domkyrkans Tvärskepp - Uppsala / Nef transversale de la Cathedralé - Upsal.
Imp. Lemercier Paris. 1857-1859. Image area 37 x 25,5 cm. Whole sheet 57 x 40cm. Colour printed lithograph.
An outstanding lithograph showing the interior of the Cathedral in a warm candle light atmosphere. 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.
