From the portfolio Picturesque Architecture in Paris, Ghent, Antwerp, Rouen, etc.. Boys’ portfolio contained the first artists’ lithographs printed in color. The printer Charles Hullmandel used his own color printing process, which shared some similarities with Engelmann’s but relied on superimposed layers of translucent inks. Hullmandel also developed a technique that he called lithotint, in which ink was applied to the stone with a brush to simulate a watercolor effect, like that seen here in the sky. Although he received an English patent for lithotint in 1840, the technique fell out of use shortly after his death, as interest in artists’ lithographs declined.
