This delicate print originates from a very scarse series of horse prints: ‘Abbildungen vorzuglicher Pferde-Rassen’, by Emil Volkers, made c. 1880. Some of these prints were also used for an even scarser: ‘Sport, Illustrierte Blatter fur Reiter und Pferdefreunde’, published by Schickhardt & Ebner, Stuttgart.

Made by ‘Emil Volkers’ after own design. Emil Volkers (1831-1905): German painter, lithographer. He is known for his landscape and animal scenes. For a time he worked for the Prince of Romania in Bucharest, but most of his career was spend in Dusseldorf.

Condition: Very good, given age. Paper edges ocassionally chipped. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully.
