This linocut celebrates the Pure Café, the "quintessential Parisian bistro" on a trendy corner of the 11th Arrondissement. The charming signs on the façade are like a delightful hors-d'oeuvre, inviting one into the cozy interior of a typical Parisian café of La Belle Epoque.
To make my art prints, my original sketch is transfered onto a block of lino which I cut out with special gouges. I hand pull my art prints on a press, one at a time.
Each linocut is a unique and original piece of art. Slight differences in each print are inherent in the process.
The print is sold unmounted and unframed but fits in a standard 50 cm x 50 cm frame.
Ships from France in a heavy-duty cardboard art tube using a tracked postal service.
