Gloss:
Louis Prang contracted with Moran to publish the artist's watercolors of the West as chromoligthographs. Chromolithography prints color as part of the lithographic process. When it was perfected in the mid-nineteenth century, chromolithography made possible the inexpensive reproduction of works of art because it supplanted the more costly method of adding color by hand to prints.
