Born in Silesia (now Poland), Louis Prang (1824-1909), was
America’s most prolific and influential publisher of chromolithographs. He
learned to print in color from his father, a calico printer. In 1850, the
younger Prang immigrated to the United States after participating in the
uprisings of 1848. After a short-lived partnership as a chromolithographic
printmaker with Julius Mayer (Prang & Mayer), Prang set up his own firm of
L. Prang & Co. in 1860, in Boston. His many small prints were hugely popular
for collections and albums. Within his first ten years of business, Prang
started to issue color-printed copies of famous paintings, which were based on
oils and watercolors. The company was in business until 1897. More than any
other print publisher, Prang created the market for chromolithographs in
