Charley's Aunt is a hand pulled, fine art poster lithograph, by S2 Art of the original advertising poster by Chadwick Rymer.
Rymer had created the classic image in 1830 for W.S. Penley's performance as Charley's Aunt in London. In poster, Penley is depicted as the Queen of Trumps to illustrate that the play is a farce.
The lithograph is pulled on a 19th century French Marinoni Voirin press on Rives BFK archival paper.
This is not print or reproduction. It is a remastered, recreated, original work of art.
This piece was produced at S2 Editions Atelier, New York City, in 1999, under the guidance of the Ré Society, Ltd, and S2 Art company.
This lithograph bears the trademark of the Ré Society, plus the blind stamped emblem of the S2 Editions Atelier. The signature of the chromist is also printed unobtrusively on this lithograph in order to distinguish it from the original Golden Age poster.
The lithograph is sequentially numbered in pencil in the lower left border, by a curator at S2 Editions.
Comes with a certificate of authenticity by S2 Art Group, Ltd. Item is packaged and shipped in a museum quality tube.
Dimensions: 20" x 30.5"
