This is a vintage art print titled "The Government Pawn Shop. From the Original Painting by M. Munkacsy." It is in excellent condition and shows a scene of several groups of people lined up at the window of a pawn shop. The print is accompanied by a section of text describing the scene and noting the participation of Jewish people in the business, not a very flattering account, rather condescending and anti-Semitic in tone. There is also a brief account of the career of the artist.

**************************************

Mihály Munkácsy (originally Michael von Lieb; 20 February 1844 – 1 May 1900) was a Hungarian painter, who lived in Paris and earned international reputation with his genre pictures and large scale biblical paintings.

Munkácsy was born Michael von Lieb to German parents in Munkács, Kingdom of Hungary, the town from which he later gathered his pseudonym. [1] After being apprenticed to itinerant painter Elek Szamossy, Munkácsy went to Pest, the capital city, where he sought the patronage of some established artists. With the help of the landscapist Antal Ligeti he received a grant from the state so he could study abroad. In 1865, he studied at the Academy of Vienna under Karl Rahl. In 1866, he went to Munich to study at the Academy, and in 1868 he moved to the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf to learn from the popular genre painter Ludwig Knaus. In 1867, he travelled to Paris to see the Universal Exposition. After this trip his style became much lighter, with broader brushstrokes and tonal colour schemes - he was probably influenced by modern French painting seen at the Exposition.


In the early years of his career Munkácsy painted mainly scenes from the daily lives of peasants and poor people. First he followed the colourful, theatrical style of contemporary Hungarian genre painters (e. g. Károly Lotz, János Jankó), for example in The Cauldron (1864) or Easter Merrymaking (1865). In the next years he started to pay more attention to the landscape into which he placed his figures (Storm in the Puszta, 1867). From the Düsseldorf genre painters he learnt to represent different emotions in his figures and to treat them as a group (The Last Day of a Condemned Man, 1869). He is associated with the Düsseldorf school of painting.

********************************************

   This photogravure has been cleaned and is free of age toning and foxing spots. The print area, minus margins, measures approx. 7.50 by  10.50 inches, and the overall size is approx. 15 by 11 inches. It is printed on a quality thick paper blank on the reverse side. This is an antique print, over 120 years old, and guaranteed to be as described.

Photogravure is a type of intaglio printmaking initially developed in the 1830s by Henry Fox Talbot in England and Nicéphore Niépce in France. These were the first photographs, pre-dating daguerreotypes and the later silver-gelatin photos. Photogravure in its mature form was developed in 1879 by Karl Klič (Karel Klitsch)(1841-1926) of the Czech Republic, then Arnau. This process, the one we use today, is called the Talbot-Klič process. Photogravure was developed to provide an archivally permanent way of reproducing a photographic image. Because of its high quality and richness, photogravure was used for both original fine art prints and for reproduction of works from other media such as paintings.
