Alexandre Calame (aka Alexandre Calam; Alexandre Calamy) (1810–1864)
“Hillside Sloping to the Right with Three Trees” (descriptive title only), c1862, signed in the plate at lower right. This may be a proof before later lettering with publication details as the size of the sheet and the portrayed subject is in accord with the folio of 272 lithographs, “L'Étude du Paysage” 1862–65), printed and published by François Delarue (fl. 1850s–1860s) in Paris and also published in London by Moore, Mc Queen & Co (1816–1956), in the second of two volumes in “Collection de modèles élémentaires et gradués formant un cours complet autographié d'après nature” (for example: https://collections.geneve.ch/mah/oeuvre/vue-dun-arbre/e-2015-0423-120). Note also that the attribution of the date of execution (c1862) meets with the stylistic change in the artist’s signature from his earlier signature style thirty years earlier (see for example: https://collections.geneve.ch/mah/oeuvre/arbres/e-2017-1008-024).
Lithograph (possibly a transfer lithograph) printed in black on heavy wove paper.
Size: (slightly irregular sheet) 40 x 31.5 cm.
Condition: a strong and well-printed impression laid onto a support of archival (millennium quality) washi paper. There are several fractures to the edges of the sheet (repaired and now supported), otherwise the sheet is in an excellent condition with no major tears, holes, folds, abrasions, stains or foxing.
