This portrait is available as a high quality gicleé reproduction print using technology that preserves the exquisite detail and color of the original work. Gicleé (meaning “sprayed ink”) is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are sprayed onto high quality canvas, which is then stretched on a 1.5" deep wood frame. The smooth transitions of color gradients of this process result in gallery-quality reproductions.
Framing is not necessary, as edges are gallery wrapped. Each gicleé print is hand-signed by the artist.
Your gicleé is produced at the time of order and will be shipped within approximately 2 weeks.
