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.
These Stick No Bills® Limited Edition Light A3 prints measure 29.7 x 42cm / 11.7” x 16.5” inclusive of a 2cm / 0.8” border.
The excess 2cm border affords a professional framer a margin to 'grip' while also ensuring the print fits perfectly into standard 'off-the-shelf' 29.7 x 42cm frames (readily available on all five continents) with no need to guillotine any of the edges. While the FSC certified as responsibly harvested Italian 340 GSM matt art board we print on is acid and lignin free and so fade resistant we recommend framing these prints, as per all our limited editions, in acid-free mounts using acid-free tape, ideally mounted behind UV defense anti-reflective glass, so as to help ensure their longevity.
Before dispatch we emboss your limited edition print with our copyright seal, number it sequentially in pencil and generate an accompanying certificate of authenticity. We hand-write the title of the artwork, the variant and the unique number it has been assigned onto the certificate which comes signed and sealed by an authorised Stick No Bills® signatory, before shipping them worldwide in biodegradable yet highly dent flat packs. We hope these Limited Edition Light A3s will serve as ‘gifts for life’ for you or for the friend to whom we are shipping them on your behalf.
