19th Century Views of the Nation's Most Prestigious Colleges


View Collection →


At the turn of the century, Littig & Company commissioned the accomplished artist Richard Rummell (1848-1924) to create watercolors of some of the nations most prestigious colleges. From these watercolors, copper-plates were engraved and a limited number of pulls (engravings) were distributed.

Unlike other college views of the period, the Rummell plates are glorious panoramic views of the entire campus. Art historians speculate that since the views appear to be drawn from an altitude of about 300 ft., it is likely that the artist worked from a balloon.

Arader Galleries has commissioned a master printer to pull a limited number of restrikes from these original copper-plates of college views. Printed on heavy wove paper, these college views are available uncolored or expertly hand-colored by the master printer.

Each view is available framed for $850 or unframed for $600 (small plate sizes, $475 framed or $350 unframed.) Available mouldings are curly maple, gold & black or standard black. All pieces will be fitted with acid-free mat board and plexiglass.
