LUDWIG I OF BAVARIA: Ludwig, gerecht und beharrlich, Decoration von Fräulein G.v. Meiern zur Feier der Ankunft S.S.K.K.M.M. von Bayern in Nürnberg, am 25ten August 1833.
Place and Year: [Nürnberg, 1833?]
Technique: Lithograph in blach and gold, and gouache (Very good, slightly dusty in margins, a tiny tear in margin) 47,5 x 67,5 (18.7 x 26.6 inches).
A beautiful large broadside shows a portrait of Ludwig I of Bavaria (1786 – 1868), a king of Bavaria from 1825 to 1848, as a center of sun rays. The letters and rays hsve been lithographed in gold and black, and details have been hand-coloured with highly decorative gouache colours.
The broadside was printed privately, and was based on a decoration made by miss C. von Maiern for the occasion of the visit of Ludwig I to Nuremberg, on August 25 1833.
The broadside is very rare. We could only trace one example in the institutions worldwide.
