A colorful oil print depicting a dramatic poaching scenery in the Bavarian forest. Two poachers are caught in the act and one of them tries to shoot the hunter while the other escapes with the game. The template for this print is a famous painting by Josef Ringeisen with the name "Dangerous Situation". Framed behind glass in a wooden frame with painted finish. Frame with traces of use.
Oil color printing, also called oleography or oil printing, is a technique of color lithography (chromolithography). Unlike artistic original printmaking, the primary goal here is not to produce an original multiple times (as a print from an original print medium, that is, from a plate that the artist has worked on himself), but to duplicate an image as a reproduction, imitating the impression of a painted original oil painting. Oil color printing was often used in the 19th century to reproduce famous paintings.
