This is a very rare oleograph from 1911, featuring the Ruling Princes of India. Printed by Vivian Mansell & Co., London, it shows Maharajas at the Delhi Durbar. The rulers are standing in the order of the number of gun salutes they received. These oleographs were printed specially for the occasion.
Oleographs, also called chromolithographs, are multi-colour art prints, stemming from the process of lithography. Pioneered in the 1830s, the process of producing oleographs, called chromolithography, came into wide commercial use in the 1860s. The technique relied on using several woodblocks or stones with colours for printing, while hand-colouring remained an important aspect as well. Depending on the number of colours present, an oleograph could take months to produce by very skilled workers. Poor preservation and cheaper printing alternatives have made oleographs hard to find. Today, they are mainly used as fine art.
