Print

Eleusis: The Pavement of the Temple
1857-1926, American

This is a gorgeous original lithograph of ancient Greek ruins by Joseph Pennell, from his series "In the Land of Temples", based on his travels through Greece and Italy. The image size is 16 1/2 x 21 3/4 inches, published in 1913 in a very small edition of 50, printed on a watermarked wove type paper, pencil signed. In his book "In the Land of Temples", Pennell writes of this print "Swept away is everything, mysteries and all— all that remains is the great pavement on which stand the stumps of columns; yet I doubt if it was finer ever.
