One of the fifteen exquisite chromolithographs produced from pastel works by French artist and astronomer Étienne Léopold Trouvelot, for The Trouvelot Astronomical Drawings published in 1882. After a somehwat disatrous foray into entomology (he accidentally introduced the highly destructive European Gyspy moth onto North American soil), Trouvelot turned to illustrating the heavens and was invited onto the staff of the Harvard College Observatory when the then director Joseph Winlock saw the quality of his illustrations, and in 1875 he was invited to use the U. S. Naval Observatory’s 26-inch refractor for a year. As well as his illustrations, Trouvelot also published some 50 scientific papers, and was credited with discovering “veiled spots” on the Sun in 1875. (Image source: New York Public Library)

Museum quality Giclee print printed using archival inks on premium fine art paper — 100% cotton, finely textured, and acid-free archival substrates purposefully chosen for optimal historical art reproduction. Orders for US and Canada will be printed on Epson’s Somerset Velvet (255gsm); Australian orders on Hahnemühle’s Photo Rag (188gsm); and all other orders on St Cuthbert Mill’s Somerset Enhanced Velvet (255gsm).

All frames are custom made to order.

  • Solid wood with a 3/4″ face (and 1″ depth for US orders, 3/4“ elsewhere).
  • 2” acid-free 4-ply natural white mat with beveled edges
  • Shatterproof, high quality UV-shielding acrylic glazing
  • Archival acid-free foam core backing

Why acrylic instead of glass? Although more expensive than glass, like most art-sellers and galleries we’ve chosen acrylic for its superior UV protection, and because it is also lighter and much less breakable — not only does this ensure it gets to you safely, but also handy for when you might want to move house in the future!

Unframed prints will be shipped in quality tubes, and framed prints expertly and securely packed to make sure they arrive in top condition.
