Church Drawing to Color

Vintage church drawing to color in black and white. It depicts a church somewhere in Hungary. It was included in a book about Hungarian folklore. Published in 1907 and written by Desi Malonyai (1866-1916), a Hungarian writer and art historian. He did not identify a particular illustrator though it’s clear work from several artists was included. Gutenberg puts it in the public domain in the United States. I think, repeat I think, based on his date of death (over 70 years ago), the work is in the public domain everywhere.

I think it would be a great coloring image, don’t you? It is a big black and white drawing that features a church with its modest steeple. The stone foundation, trees and bushes also provide great opportunities for coloring. It could be a country church from any small town.
