Jacques Gerard Milbert. “Vue du Cours supérieur de la rivière Mohawk qui se réunit au fleuve Hudson. Etat de New-York.” From Amérique Septentrionale.
Paris, ca. 1825. Lithograph by Langlumé. 9 1/2 x 14 1/2. Light hand color. Repaired tears in bottom margin. Light old mat stain in margins. Very good condition.
Besides for his Itinéraire Pittoresque, Milbert also produced a number of other series of views of America, including a set of seven images titled Amérique Septentrionale. This image is from that set and it shows up upper regions of the Mohawk River in New York State. It is typical of Milbert’s excellent artistic ability and provides a wonderful image of this important region shortly after the opening of the Erie Canal. Slightly larger and much rarer than the Itinéraire prints, this is a most desirable American print.
