Located in suburban Philadelphia, Longwood Gardens is one of the premier botanical gardens in the United States.  It was founded in 1906 by Pierre S. du Pont, an American entrepreneur, businessman, and philanthropist, who dedicated over 1,077 acres to gardens and woodlands.  This gazebo and lily pond are very popular among Longwood visitors. There is also a sixty-one-foot-tall stone carillon tower and an organ that can be heard throughout the conservatory.

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.
