This auction is for a superb original antique lithograph print by Sir Lawrence Alma Tadema. Titled "Under the Roof of Blue Ionian Weather" this very large print is hand colored and exceptionally fresh. Printed on thick paper with very large margins. These prints were issued under the supervision of Alma Tadema himself, in 1901 and published by Arthur Tooth in London. It was printed in Munich.
The size of the actual print (the part that shows the painting) is 33" (84 cm) x 13-3/4" (35 cm). When I  include the margins, the total measurements are 39-3/4" (101 cm) x 22-1/2" (57 cm). Condition of this print is excellent. I removed this print from the old original frame and as you can see in the photo's this print has discoloration along the edge from the old frame and there are small holes where the print was nailed to the frame. However, as the margins of this print are so large this is really no problem at all as this would fall behind the matting if the new owner should want to frame this print again. Or you could simply cut off the stained edges and you would still be left with a very generous margin.
The center of the print is in wonderfully fresh condition with only a few very small spots of foxing (really not detracting). The colors are very vibrant and all original. I removed this print from the original antique frame, it has been protected for over 115 years by a glass front and was probably kept out of the light or in storage for most of the time. I cannot stress the quality of this absolute genuine antique print, all the colors are handpainted and the hues and nuances of tones in the marble are amazing.
