We are pleased to bring you Harriet Quimby, an outstanding example of stone lithography on vintage cigar label art from the turn of the century.
Outstanding, almost three dimensional image featuring Harriet Quimby, the first woman to gain a pilot’s license in the United States. Probably done as a tribute after her tragic death in a plane crash in Squantum (Quincy) Massachusetts. This fantastic example from the Davidson Archive has been painstakingly restored by the artists at Elm Graphics from an original lithographer’s proof, using modern digital graphics software while maintaining strict adherence to the “stipple art” method utilized by the chromolitho artists of the period. Boston Ink and Paper recreates these timeless artworks in 12 colors on Canon Pro Premium Matte archival quality paper. This 11″ x 14″ poster fits into standard mats and frames.
Harriet Quimby is part of our Réplique line of giclée prints, selected for outstanding subject matter, spectacular art and makes a great conversation piece that goes well with a number of classic decor themes.
