Heliographed (Plate) & Printed by: Meisenbach, Riffarth & Co. (Berlin)
 
Printed in shades of brown, green and blue for the "eye" of the feather, this still life study of a human skull resting on an open book with peacock feather behind it may be an example of a Chine-collÚ photogravure printed using the Vogel-Kurtz three-color printing system.
 
"...Meisenbach, Riffarth & Co., having distinguished itself by the use of the Vogel-Kurtz three-colour printing system." Krauss: page #274.
 
In Eder (1945, p.654) we learn that Ernst Vogel, the son of Hermann Wilhelm Vogel, "tried out different color filters and systems in Berlin and then went to New York, where he and (William) Kurtz, employing azaline plates, made the first artistic and really satisfactory three-color prints, in 1892." Eder continues "Others who worked at three- and four-color process intensively were Angerer & G÷schl, Vienna; Husnik and Vilim, Prague; Meisenbach and Riffarth, Berlin, and many other men and establishments." (1945, p.654)
