As the title states, this print is one of a a sumptuous series of bright chromolithographs illustrating medieval European costume, furniture, and the arts of this period. This work was intended for a wealthy clientele throughout Europe, satisfying the demand for colorful illustrations of the past. The prints are of particularly good quality, being very fine examples of the use of printing in color (chromolithography).
