Schwartzmann & Pohl architects. "Women's Pavilion International Exhibition, 1876. Fairmount Park, Philadelphia."
Philadelphia: Schwartzmann & Pohl, Architects, 1875. 12 1/4 x 20 7/8 (neat lines plus full margins). Chromolithograph. With one short repaired tear in bottom margin. Fine condition of a scarce Imperial folio issue of a major building at the Fair that we have never seen previously.
An unusual example of a broadside print showing the Woman’s Pavilion at a place and time that was important for consideration of women in American and world society. This print was copyrighted by Schwartzmann and Pohl, Philadelphia architects. The printing was done by Julius Bien best known for his chromolithographs after J.J. Audubon. An interesting and attractive image of this major building. The emphasis is not on the usual color but on the architecture.
