M & N Hanhart(active 1839-1882), Lithographic printers
Artist associated with 333 portraits
The lithographic publishing house M. & N. Hanhart, founded by Michael Hanhart, had a long and successful history. It published its first prints in 1840 and continued to produce work beyond 1888. The firm published a wide range of material, from book illustrations to lithographic sheet music covers, but it was in the field of large, individual chromolithographs that M. & N. Hanhart excelled. Using a complex layering of tint stones, Hanhart printed elaborate works unique for their colouration and tonal values.
