A fine art giclée reproduction is from the original etching by Karl Joseph Brodtmann. Brodtmann was one of the most accomplished lithographers of his day as well as a printseller and bookseller. He lived in Zurich and Schaffhausen, Switzerland. This work is presented in a gesso and wood frame, hand-finished by craftsmen using traditional 17th-century Florentine techniques. The frame is finished in burr walnut.
