Lithograph. 50x87 cm (19½x34¼") plus margins; archivally matted and framed under plexiglass, overall 88x118 cm (34½x26¾").

Handsome view of the rapidly growing city of San Francisco looking south, lithographed by Kuchel and Dresel from the painting by Eugen Camerer. Born in Germany in 1830, Camerer traveled to the United States in the 1840's, venturing from New York to San Francisco in the early 1850's after the discovery of gold. After the usual unsuccessful attempt at mining, Camerer moved to Stockton and worked as a sign and portrait painter, as well as painting bird's eye views of many of the towns, cities, and scenic landmarks. Many of his views including Stockton, Yosemite, Mt. Shasta, and this view of San Francisco, were lithographed by the Kuchel and Dresel company in San Francisco. The handsome wood frame was custom made for the lithograph by Aedicule of San Francisco with genuine water gilt gold leafing, plaster and gesso mold design, a completely hand made frame  produced by a graduate of the oldest existing guild in the world, the Amsterdam frame makers guild.

Due to the size and/or weight of this lot extra charges may apply.
