Lithography is a planographic printmaking technique that uses oil and water to transfer ink to a smooth surface. It was invented in 1796 by Alois Senefelder, a German playwright and actor, and was first used for musical scores and maps34 Lithography produces fine art prints with rich tones and details5

The illustration depicts the bluegill’s distinctive features, such as its blue and purple face and gill cover, dark olive-colored bands down the side, and fiery orange to yellow belly1 The bluegill belongs to the Centrarchidae family, which includes hundreds of species of freshwater fish, such as sunfishes, crappies and black basses1 The bluegill can grow up to 12 inches (30 cm) in length and weigh up to 4.5 pounds (2 kg)1
