A signed limited edition lithograph depicting what appears to be a canal in Venice, Italy, with two gondola boats, one with a gondolier in the foreground.  The print has that lovely impressed look set on crisp white cotton paper and is signed with the edition information (38/60) and the artist's name (undetermined) and impressed stamp.  The print is framed by a thick white cotton matting set within a black painted wood box-style frame and the back of the frame has sturdy hanging wire and the custom framer's sticker. The print measures 4 1/2" wide and 7 1/2" tall and the frame measures 12" x 15".  The condition of the lithograph is very good, and the frame has some small areas of paint loss that can be easily repaired and a small nick and impression to the frame.  Once filled in with black, the piece will be display-ready (or displayed without repairing as the areas are very minor).   

About Hand-Pulled Prints

A hand-pulled print, or lithograph, is created by the artist directly onto a printing plate, usually made of stone or metal.  What is unique about an original print, is that the image on the printing plate is a mirror image of the final product, so the artist has to produce the art backwards.  Although multiple impressions may be made and then signed and numbered (the group of signed and numbered prints is called the edition), each print is a unique work of art.  Original prints are usually signed in pencil under the bottom right edge of the print.  The edition information is added to the bottom left edge of the print.  The edition information resembles a fraction, with the number of the print made (for example, the 10th print in a series of 100 made) and below, the number of prints that will be made from this print (for example, an edition of 100).  In this instance, the edition information would look like this:  10/100.  The title of the piece is written under the bottom edge of the print in the center.  If the print has "AP" where the title usually goes or next to the edition information, it means that the piece is an "Artist's Proof," which means the artist is still working on the plate and the print is not complete.
