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® unframed Limited Edition Giclée, you are investing in a museum standard, age-resistant, acid-free, uniquely numbered fine art print of one of our exclusive copyright images, made in Palma De Mallorca under our Founder / Creative Director’s supervision.
To produce these strictly limited editions we have the privilege of being able to giclée / spray the latest generation carbon pigmented inks onto Germany’s finest, 100% cotton-based matt finish minimum 188 GSM Hahnemühle® Photo Rag® .
Hahnemühle® is the prestigious brand name of the paper mill founded in South Lower Saxony in 1584 and renowned to this day in art galleries all over the world for prevailing as the industry benchmark manufacturer of premium quality paper, in full compliance with ISO 9706 international standards for fine art archival papers.
With Hahnemühle®’s structured etching archival fabric we are able to harness the widest tonal range and colour gamut. This in turn engenders the most intense pictorial depth and profundity of colour shades.
Each resultant giclée print is archival-safe and pH neutral with a velvet-like matt finish. The vibrant colours and soft gradients of your print when you first view it are guaranteed to be preserved for over 200 years without losing their vivid palette when exhibited and / or stored in the correct manner (indoors in a damp-free environment 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 wrapping it in acid-free tissue paper and 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 number 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 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 2 cm / 0.8" protective border.
