Descripción

Original single-sheet chromolithograph of exceptionally fine quality. Overall size 24 x 16.5 cm, printed on heavy paper. Bearing at foot the legend "Tamboer". Fine. - - Beautiful and exquisitely produced chromolithographic plate from a highly acclaimed work. In a military context, music can serve to create and maintain a warlike spirit, act as a means of communication, assist movement, and enhance morale. With the regimentation of battle tactics and the increasing importance of the need to keep step, drummers became an essential part of European armies. The plate depicts a drummer in a field outfit. In the background a mounted commander watching an infantry platoon slowly advancing towards the horizon. A very lovely plate, with dense colours and excellent gloss, beautifully heightened in gold. An authoritative manual on chromolithography in 1885 (Colour and Colour Printing, by W. D. Richmond) asserts the need for at least nine separate stones to achieve such richness, but in fact the number of stones used was often more than twenty. The plate is in its original state; one margin is yet untrimmed, with the original stab-holes. First and only edition of Brunings' hallmark series of Dutch military uniforms of the 2nd half of the 19th century. (Lipperheide 2260; Colas 464). N° de ref. de la librería 0233
