[Colour plate] Billmark, Carl Johan
Chorsidan af Domkyrkan - Uppsala / Abside de la cathedrale - Upsal.
Imp. Lemercier Paris. 1857-1859. Image area 26 x 36 cm. Whole sheet 39 x 56 cm. Colour printed lithograph.
An outstanding lithograph showing the exterior of the Cathedral with a group of people in front, birds flying. 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.
