Description

William Sharp is credited with creating the very first chromolithograph on American soil — a portrait of Reverend F. W. P. Greenwood. These images produced for John Fisk Allen’s book are the “very first colour-printed lithographs produced in America”. With their bold and stunning depth of colours, these water lily images by Sharp stand out as some of the finest examples of chromolithography.
