The Landscape Alphabet – Lithograph


Series of 26 Lithograph landscape scenes shaped as letters of the alphabet; rebound in a 20th-century binding.

Letter A: upper part composed of three figures around a fire at the edge of a slope to small pond, forming the lower part of the letter; outline by trees.

Letter B: a vista on level country, outlined by trees and branches and the edge of a rise with two figures as the bottom part of the letter.

Letter C: a castle on cliffs on the left; waves of the sea shaping the lower curve, clouds the upper one.

Letter D: a semi-circular landscape scence with mountains in right distance; a crag with trees shaping the left outline of the letter.

Letter E: a ruinous gate, the right part of its arch broken, a tree on the left stretching to the right and two men standing on the right pointing at the ruin.

Letter F: a tree trunk and two branches stretching to the right at the top and in the middle.

Letter G: a country road winding in a curve to the right with a horse-and-cart at its end, and sided on the left with trees, their branches shaping the upper curve of the letter.
