    More Information:

    Gerard van Spaendonck (1746-1822). Paper has toned; mat burn. Top right corner slightly wrinkled. Minor bleedthrough of staining caused by mounting tape at top corners on reverse. Print has been trimmed. Normally issued with hand-coloring, this print has been left uncolored. In Sitwell and Blunt's Great Flower Books, they write of Spaendonck's work: "Copies are occasionally found either hand-colored or printed in color and retouched with watercolor the watercolor serves in fact to cloud the delicacy of the stipple-work. In their black and white state, these prints may well claim to be the finest flower-engravings ever made." Light penciled notations. 13.75 x 20.5 inches.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
