Antique Stevengraph, Spanish Bull Fight.
A rare late 19th century woven silk Stevengraph of a Bull Fight entitled "Spanish Bull Fight". This example forms part of a series by Thomas Stevens of Coventry depicting sporting and other subjects. The Spanish Bull Fight is in original condition with original frame and possibly the mount also. The mount is without title but does look old. The scene is of a packed arena, in the center is the bull, matadors and a picador. The colours have not faded and are very vibrant. To keep the colours of the silk this way they should be stored away from sunlight as they are very light sensitive. Thomas Stevens was the sole inventor and manufacturer of the 'Stevengraph Pure Silk Woven Pictures'.
