This original pochoir print by the artist Alberto Magnelli is Plate I, executed in 1952. Pochoir is a French printmaking technique that was in fashion in the early 20th century. Each print is made by applying brilliant color by hand, through a series of cut-out stencils.
This extraordinary group of limited edition pochoirs comes from the collection of Barleycorn Antique Prints. Owned by British-born Philippa Katz, Barleycorn sources antique prints and rare books from across England, France, and Germany. The company is based in Vermont.
