Rare. Long title: High Street Bromsgrove. From the Town Hall. Rare lithograph of Bromsgrove High Street as published, fine on india paper laid onto wove sheet with title below. Brown mark in sky on left side, noticeable but does blend into the clouds to a degree - it is the result of bad framing with wood behind the lithograph-a little spotting in the sky also but not noticeable. One white mark on the word hall in the title below the lithograph. We have been unable to find any record of this lithograph and its superb detail and shop fronts make it of real historical interest to any Bromsgrove or Birmingham collector or anyone interested in the High Street in the Nineteenth Century (not a pound shop in sight!). Overall size tipped into hinged mount with v groove, mount and backing in fully conservation grade off white mountboard: 46.5cms x 45.7cms; image size: 298mm x 283mm including imprint. The lithographic publishing house M. & N. Hanhart, founded by Michael Hanhart, had a long and distinguishedl history. It published its first prints in 1840 and was still producing work in 1888. The firm published a wide range ofsubjects, from book illustrations to lithographic sheet music covers, but was particularly renowned for its large, individual chromolithographs that M. & N. Hanhart excelled. Using a complex layering of tint stones, Hanhart printed elaborate works unique for their colouration and tonal values. See also M. & N.
