Collages

An etching of a landscape (by Perotti, dated 1869, printed by Lovera) with a window cut out of the center of the image, is attached to a lithograph of a landscape (by Sorra, taken from an Italian 19th century drawing book, “Il Piccolo Artista” which was published in Milan, January 1889 - the verso of the lithograph appears to be the cover or the title page of the book); a small “cut out” chromolithograph of a boat has been inserted in a slit near the center of the lithograph to appear as if floating in the water in the image.
