Early 19th Century Crayon Manner Prints on the Auction Scene

As I scanned the print sections of the various European eBay sites recently, I came upon three new crayon manner prints that I had never seen before (directly below) and I thought I would share them with you. If you would like more information on the creation and history of the crayon manner print, then please pull up the previous posts on the subject here in the blog. Crayon manner prints are often confused with lithographs but trust me they are actually etchings. Enjoy.


Here are more examples of the crayon manner print:



Below I have posted illustrations of an original red chalk drawing by Johann Matthais Mauch (1792-1856) which dates from approximately the same time period (late 18th - early 19th centuries) for comparison sake. The prints are more than not marked in such a way as to disclose the name of the printer and the original artist. To my eye the prints have a more mechanical feel to them than the original drawing.
