Here, again, we offer to our classically minded clients a wonderful set of copper etchings depicting antique statues well known to all of us who feel a deep appreciation for our cultural ancestry. We happily meander through mythological terrain, reminiscent of our first encounter with the classics at school, at college or, travelling, at various museums and archiological sites. While we cannot ever possess one of the original statues, we can use to decorate the walls of our homes or offices with the antique copper etchings printed in 1704 to our own and the delight of our friends and guests.
Statues in sandstone body color are surrounded by velvety black gouache hand-color. Matting and framing should be effected inside the black gouache color. Look at sample. White margins of the prints beyond the black are spotty and not suitable to show.
