This limited edition hand finished art print titled Gordon Bennett showcases the signature combination of traditional hand finished gold leaf and modern printing techniques often seen from AAWatson.
This stylish print by the Scottish Artist, is a limited edition of only 25 created, meaning it’s the perfect rare piece of wall art to decorate your home. The artwork takes inspiration from a portrait of Countess Sofia Andreevna Bobrinskaya by Franz Xaver Winterhalter, c.1857 and uses hand-applied metallic gold leaf to add a touch of class. The artist’s clever use of genres, typography and traditional artwork, guarantee a classic print that is iconic, witty and approachable that will bring joy to any wall.
This artwork is hand finished, firstly Allan created the art print using a Giclée printed background portrait and a screen printed gloss enamel varnish, placing the gold leaf by hand while the varnish is still tacky. This method does create a degree of variation, with Watson deliberately not burnishing out any wrinkles or imperfections to further add to the uniqueness of each print from the edition. Each one is truly unique for you!
