Hotel de Ville, Prague

Artist: Thomas Shotter Boys

Date: 1859

Thomas Shotter Boys (1803–1874) was a brilliant landscape watercolourist and an innovative force in the history of lithography. He is best known for his two sets of lithographs, one of views of Paris and other cities, and the other views of London. He travelled to Brussels, Austria, Bohemia, Italy and Germany during the 1830s.  By 1837 Boys had returned to England to produce lithographs for books from the travel paintings of artists such as David Roberts, George Vivian.  In 1839 he created a superb set of twenty-six colour lithographs, “Picturesque Architecture in Paris, Ghent, Antwerp, and Rouen,” which received rave reviews in London and Paris and he even received a diamond encrusted ring from Louis Philippe, the French King. His second famous set of twenty-six views, “Original Views of London As It Is,” was published in 1842. Boys continued to paint and exhibit landscapes in watercolours. Inexplicably his career declined drastically, and by the 1850s he was forced to take piece-work engraving commissions. Boys died in poverty in 1874.

Quality

Our papers are loved for their vibrant tonal range and the handmade feel of their beautiful texture. They are 100% cotton based which gives an aesthetic expected with traditional fine art techniques.

Each piece is printed to order in house in our own print studio and delivered in sustainable packaging.

All Musée museum quality prints are professionally mounted on 2.4mm acid free art board ready to free stand or frame. Mounted prints also help to preserve the qualty of the edges and keep the prints perfectly flat with no risk of cockling. Cockling is the process by which a print starts to ripple due to changing levels of ambient moisture which are naturally present in the air in all our homes. Also, when you decide to either change your Musée artwork in your frames or swap them out for a new find, a Musée mounted print will stay flat and safe whilst in storage.
