We are delighted to offer these beautiful hand colored engravings of Norman Architecture by Cotman.  The superb engravings remind us how rich France is in ancient architecture.  It is one of the few countries of Europe relatively unspoiled by war, so it has much to reveal of the buildings & ways of the past.  Even in Paris, which has seen tremendous waves of renovation & construction throughout the centuries, one can still walk the very same streets of the Latin Quarter where the French Revolution took place. 

Each region of France has its own architectural splendours, with the Loire Valley popularized by the Kings of France & full of resplendent castles, to the earlier architecture of Normandy, including the spectacular Mont St Michel. The hand engraving in these plates is exquisite, rich in chiaroscuro & painstaking detail, capturing the magnificence of the arches & pillars & monuments of a bygone era.

Each single print measures approximately 13 1/2 inches by 19 1/2 inches, and the doubles measure approximately 19 1/2 inches 25 1/2 inches. The strong creamy white wove paper is without blemishes. Each print has been recently hand colored by one of the last remaining professional colorists in England. A copy of the original title page accompanies each print.  The photos are very accurate, so please review carefully. All our prints are authentic antique prints and guaranteed to be from the date stated.  These prints are about 175 years old.
