L'Autre Arc

Paris, France

Romans are credited with the invention of the triumphal arch. In AD82 the Romans constructed the Arch of Titus to commemorate Titus's Siege of Jerusalem in AD70. The Arch of Titus is thought to be the model for many subsequent triumphal or honorific arches including both L'Arc de Triomphe de l'Etoile and L'Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel (this arch). The "Carrousel" arch predates the larger and more-famous "L'Etoile" arch by about 30 years and was built to commemorate Napoleon's military victories. The statue atop the arch was originally the "Horses of Saint Mark" taken by Napoleon as a spoil of war in 1798. In 1815 France ceded the "quadriga" to Austria. The Austrians returned the statue to Venice and Venice quickly built a mock-up of the horses to place atop Saint Mark's Cathedral and placed the original statue in a museum. This arch was the basis of design for London's Marble Arch; the ceremonial entrance to Buckingham Palace. Photo © copyright by Craig Kerr.

Fine Art Print

Fine Art Print

A beautiful and classic way to display your photographs is with a traditionally framed print. Your image is printed to the highest standard available using pigment-based inks, 100% cotton rag, archival-quality paper and coatings for vibrant colorfastness, clarity and depth that will last a lifetime. 

All prints are mounted on 2mm acid-free polystyrene allowing for framing without the need for additional mounting and greatly reducing the possibility of being damaged in handling. Please contact me if you prefer/need a traditional loose-paper print.

High Gloss Metal

High Gloss Metal

Metal prints have striking color depth and contrast and a brilliant glossy finish. Medium and large metal prints can really produce a wow factor unlike other display options. Images with deep color saturation and rich black tones have an extra "pop" when printed on metal and the thick glossy finish has a shiny wet appearance. These ready-to-hang prints come with a sturdy hanging system and appear to float off the wall.

Metal prints are a great choice for a clean, contemporary look without the need for framing.

Gallery Canvas

Gallery Canvas

Canvas Gallery Wraps are a fantastic and popular way to display medium and large-format photographs. Ready-to-hang right out of the box they eliminate the need, cost and weight of additional framing. Canvas wraps allow full edge-to-edge display of fine art photos and are easily viewed from all angles as the image "wraps" around the frame all the way to the wall.

Gallery wraps are a great option for large rooms with a lot of light as the canvas surface is less reflective than traditional glass or acrylic framing.

Exhibition Acrylic

Exhibition Acrylic

Acrylic float mounts have a stunning modern art gallery look. Printed on metallic paper and mounted on 3mm DiBond (a lightweight, strong, archival-quality mounting surface) the print is face-mounted to 1/4" clear acrylic and fitted with your choice of mounting system; french cleat or stainless post. Similar to metal prints, acrylic mounts display vibrant color density, deep black tones and sharp contrast. 

Choose acrylic mounts for exhibition-level photo displays in your home or business.
