THOMAS SULLY Orig Framed Lithograph 1899 Boy
THE TORN HAT Detroit Publishing Co. This is
an amazing antique lithograph of a boy in
"The Torn Hat" by Thomas Sully (1783-1872).
Sully, an American portrait painter, was
born in Lincolnshire, England, came to
American at the young age, living most of
his life in Philadelphia. He is known today
as one of Philadelphia's leading portraitist
for the early nineteenth century. His works
featured some of the most influential people
of his time. Presidents, Queens, leading
musicians, composers. This work features
Thomas's nine-year old son, Thomas Wilcocks
Sully. Wearing an open shirt, rumpled jacket
and a straw hat with a torn brim. This work
was published in the late 1800's to the
early 1900's by the Detroit Publishing
Company. It is marked in the lower right
"Copyright Detroit Publishing Company,
65008" It is not a typical antique print as
it was done with a unique printing technique
known as chromolithography. In using this
process the publisher has managed to capture
the boy's true haunting quality that was the
essence of the original painting. It
portrays well in its original now 'shabby
chic' looking frame, behind glass. The print
has excellent coloring still with no visible
stains, tears or damage. Original paper
backing is long gone. Framer's label is now
viewable on back, "H. Leiber Company,
Indiana". The lithograph measures 10" x 13".
Overall frame size is 12-1/4" x 16".
Although the frame is scarred, chipped,
finish worn it could be restored if a more
refined look is required. For those of us
who can never hope to acquire an original
painting by Thomas, its a joy to come across
an scarce original antique chromolithograph
of one of his works.

etching. Signed in pencil "Nicol". Oval
etching of pretty young lady gathering flowers
in her basket, with plate mark around the
edge. Frame measures 17-3/4" x 11-3/4".
10-1/2" x 8" on the oval etching area. There
does not appear to be any blind stamp, or
watermark, but I have not opened this up to
see it first hand. The paper appears to be
wove with lite texture. There does not appear
to be any tears or holes and the coloring is
still quite vivid and bright and does not
appear to have been subjected to sunlight when
displayed. There is no foxing. There is some
stains on the border and some on her dress
area. I've shown several pictures so you can
see the quality and its condition. I've
cleaned the front glass, but it really needs
to be opened up and cleaned and have the old
dingy cardboard backing replaced. I'll leave
that to you.
