[Plate] Billmark, Carl Johan


Paris, imp Lemercier, rue de Seine 55. [1852] 29 x 43 cm. Lithograph.

Large margins. A couple of creases and spots in the margins.

A very dramatic view of the ruins of the medieval Stegeborg Castle in Sweden. Crows flying from the central tower, flashes and rain drapes as back rop. A man with his dog is struggling to get cover in the ruins. Published for the work "Svenska Vuer", an abridged edition of the great work "Pittoresk resetour från Stockholm till Neapel". .Billmark arrived in Paris as a young man and lived there for most of his life, working with the best artists and craftsmen of the time. He produced several lithographic albums of high quality, some depicting european sceneries and some sceneries of his native country. One of the best in his profession. Uncommon.
