He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ring'd with the azure world, he stands.
The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls.
The Eagle By Edward Lord Tennyson

24" X 48" Giclee on canvas print. The prints are Side stapled or can be gallery wrapped at your request. If you are purchasing the frame ready print and want to choose a frame to match your home or office decor, order the side stapled print.
Gallery wrap is a method of stretching an artist's canvas so that the canvas wraps around the sides of the stretcher bar or strainer bars and is secured to the back of the wooden frame. Gallery Wraps are considered high end wall art due to their giclee printing process.
Artist Proofs are available on special orders and sell for 30% more than the regular edition. Technology has changed quite a bit since the early days of printmaking. Today, all prints within a run of offset lithographic prints or Giclee prints will be identical in quality. However, the tradition of having a special edition within the edition has stuck around. The value of owning an artist’s proof does not relate to quality, it relates to the importance of owning a rare portion of an edition. Most offset lithographic editions and Giclee editions include less than 20 percent artist’s proofs. Because the art world loves rarity and since there are fewer artist’s proofs than regular prints, they are preferred by many collectors.
Artist’s proofs are clearly notated on the reproduction. If there were 50 artist’s proofs, they will likely be numbered 1/50 A.P. to 50/50 A.P. Most often they will cost between 20% and 50% more than a signed and numbered print from the same edition.
The reproductions are printed as needed on-demand by a printing company. Once an image is digitally archived, additional reproductions can be made with minimal effort and reasonable cost. The quality of the giclée print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries. All orders are pre-pay only.
