Frederich Lord Leighton ~ Lachrymae (Mary Lloyd) ~ Photogravure copper plate for Wills cigarette cards; this was the artist's swan-song; this the original copper plate from which the card were printed; only one plate was produced of this iconic work, and this is it ~ in itself the cigarette cards are highly collectable; they can sell for thousands of dollars ~ this is your chance to own the copper plate, and print your own images of Leighton's ~ tears, is the translation of the work; the artist suffered from a fatal heart decease ~ flow my tears, was made of Mary Lloyd. Condition of the copper plate is flawless. It was hard to get a good picture of the copper plate; #2 is the wills image, #3 is the actual painting (2 &3 not included in the sale) please note: no other etching or engraving of the image exists.
