Billmark (along with M. G. Anckarswärd) is the greatest lithographer Sweden has ever possessed.
Carl Johan Billmark arrived in Paris as a young man and lived there for most of his life, working with the best artists and craftsmen of the time. He produced several lithographic albums of high quality, some depicting European sceneries and some sceneries of his native country. He made frequent trips to Sweden to sketch originals. Billmark died during the siege of Paris in 1870.
This plate is uncolored which gives a unique opportunity to study Billmark's lithographic skills.
