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 Limited Edition (1/250) unframed Prints with foil inlay lettering measure 29.7 x 42cm / 11.7” x 16.5” inclusive of a 2cm / 0.8” white protective border. Specialist printed on 340 GSM matt art board with either gold, silver, electric green, red or blue foiled inlay lettering we shall number your limited edition sequentially in pencil in the bottom right hand corner of the artwork before embossing it with our copyright seal and wrapping it in acid-free tissue paper.
We then insert the print(s) into highly dent resistant flatpacks along with a corresponding Certificate of Authenticity, signed and sealed by a member of the Stick No Bills® executive management team.
The certificate confirms the provenance of the image and verifies which number limited edition of the series of 250 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.
