Glacial Seas, was the most important scene of the panoramic
« Zones Terrestres », designed by the artist Eugène Ehrmann in 1855
for the Zuber manufacture, France.
Over 2000 wood-blocks were required for the making of this décor
(the blocks were destroyed during WW II)
Printed in small editions between 1855-1878, this panel dates of this period and shows the finesse of the engraving process and the delicacy of the tones.
In excellent condition, the decor was mounted on acid-free linen canvas and stretcher: H 6’9’’ x W 8’8’’
A version of this scene is in the collection of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris
