Description
Size: Frame 56 x 46 cm, print inside mount 38 x 27 cm. Condition: Print in excellent condition, mount and frame new. This superb original print is from "Studies in Design", a collection of 60 designs for domestic ornament created by Dr Christopher Dresser, the most influential designer of his generation. The work was published by Cassell Petter & Galpin in 1875, and the plates printed by A Goater of Nottingham. This print is plate XLVI (46), and the tissue guard for the print described it thus: "Grotesques, being part of a dado-rail. This could scarcely be used if simply repeated, but should be intermixed with creatures designed in the same spirit. Gothic." The quality of the chromolithograph printing is very high and produces a full but flat colour quite different from modern prints. Dresser wrote "I have prepared this Work with the hope of assisting to bring about a better style of decorations for our houses. My book is intended to help the decorator and to enable those who live in decorated houses to judge, to an extent, the merit of the ornament around them."
