Mount Lavinia Beach, Ceylon, 1948
A hope-filled, almost California-esque celebration of hedonism depicted on Mount Lavinia Beach in 1948 by CKL Samarasinghe. CKL captures both the feeling of freedom and the advent of gender equality in the air at the end of WWII and more importantly the feeling of freedom from colonial rule as 1948 was the year the British left the Island paradise forever.
When you purchase a Stick No Bills® Limited Edition Giclée, you are investing in a uniquely numbered, museum standard, fade-resistant, acid and lignin-free print produced on responsibly harvested velvety textured matt finish watercolour art material that meets the Fine Art Trade Guild´s impeccable standards for limited edition prints.
To produce these strictly limited editions we have the privilege of being able to use the most state of the art printing technology to giclée / spray the latest generation carbon pigmented inks onto highest grade etching fine art fabric, enabling us to achieve exceptional pictorial depth and range of colour gamut.
Each resultant giclée is archival-safe and pH neutral with soft gradients guaranteed to be preserved for generations without losing their vivid palette when exhibited and / or stored in the correct manner and out of direct sunlight.
We shall number your print sequentially in pencil in the bottom right-hand corner of the artwork. We also emboss the bottom edge of your print with our copyright seal before inserting it into a highly dent resistant yet biodegradable tube along with a corresponding Certificate of Authenticity, signed and sealed by a member of the Stick No Bills® executive management team.
Your certificate confirms the provenance of the image and verifies which exact limited edition of the series you have gained. For insurance purposes and for posterity’s ease of reference, it is recommended that you keep this certificate with the print at all times. Many clients seal their certificate to the back of the frame within which they mount the print.
Our museum grade limited editions are available in four standard sizes, all printed right to the outer edge of the artworks, added to which we seamlessly add an additional approximate 2 cm / 0.8" protective border.
