From a limited edition of only 5000, this pair of Oleograph paintings by Johann - Laurents Jenson are mounted onto new wooden frames on their original canvas's.
They are lovely dark tones of blacks, reds and blues, and we think they would look lovely as part of a gallery wall. With some age related wear, (mainly around the edges of the canvas) we believe they are around 90 - 100 years old. There is some lovely crazing present on the surface which adds so much character.
Oleography was widely used in the late 19th century, and involved the process of chromolithography, using a range of between 15-20 colours. A stamping process is used to imitate a canvas surface and the thick strokes of oil paint.
