Christian Schultz, 1868 Chromolithograph The Adoration of the Lamb, Arundel Society
This is a Chromolithograph of The Adoration of the Lamb, the centre lower panel of the large Altar-piece by the brothers Van Eyck in the Cathedral of St. Bavon, at Ghent, executed by M. Hangard-Mauge, under the superintendence of M. C. Schultz, and published by the Arundel Society
M Christian Schultz (1817-1882) was a lithographer who worked extensively with the Arundel Society.
Van Eyck's most famous work is the retable for St Bavo's Cathedral in Ghent - a work in 20 panels with The Adoration of the Lamb of God as its central piece. The work is widely considered as one the
highlights of the Northern Renaissance. It is possible that Jan Van Eyck finished the
work of his brother Hubert (or Hubrecht; 1370-1426).
Founded in 1848, the Arundel Society was named after Thomas Howard, Earl of Arundel and was designed to promote the knowledge of art. This was accomplished by the publication of engravings, facsimiles of ivory carvings, chromolithographs from carefully coloured copies of selected pictures and literary monographs. The Society’s first works were exhibited in 1855 in the Crystal Palace. Maintained by public support, its first Council included the Marquis of Lansdowne, Lord Lindsay and John Ruskin; however, by 1901, public support had been so eroded by the cheap photographic prints which flooded the market, that the Society came to an end.
The Arundel Society Collection of Chromolithographs from Copies of Important works of Ancient Masters (as it was described by W. Noel Johnston in 1907) was created by the Arundel Society between the years 1857 and 1897. In all, a total of 199 works, including engravings, lithographs and carvings were distributed.
