A colorful oil print depicting a dramatic poaching scenery in the Bavarian forest. Two poachers in a boat try to escape while the hunter is shooting on them. The template for this print is a famous painting by Josef Ringeisen with the name "Koenigssee". Framed behind glass in a wooden frame with painted finish. Frame with traces of use and a small restauration on the left upper edge.
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.
