Neighborhoods Stretched canvas Prints (Giclées)

Philadelphia is a city of colorful and livable neighborhoods, many in the shadows of Center City high rises.

A giclée print is an elevation in printmaking technology on stretched canvas.  The original oil on canvas artwork is first scanned by the Athenæum of Philadelphia on a sophisticated high-resolution digital scanner with a raking light to capture surface details.  The giclée is then printed using a professional eleven-color ink jet printer with archival-quality inks onto high quality cotton canvas.  This printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction.  The canvas giclée is then stretched on 1" or ¾" stretcher bars.  An historical and architectural description (written by John) is affixed to the back and the giclée is enclosed in a protective acid-free clear bag.
