Imp. Lemercier, Paris. 1857-1859. Image area 39 x 27,5 cm. Whole sheet 51 x 36 cm. Colour printed lithograph.

An outstanding lithograph showing beggars outside the side entrance of the Uppsala Cathedral as well as two women being greeted by a soldier. Carl Johan Billmark was educated at Forsell´s engraving school in Stockholm, but soon turned to lithography, and after settling in Paris developed a brilliant talent. This is one of Billmark´s best work, in splendid french colour lithograpy by Lemercier in Paris.
